What You Need to Know

As the federal budget season is upon us, many advocates are preparing to visit Washington, DC to urge Congress to fund federal programs critical to the health care workforce. However, you do not need to be in DC to be an effective advocate. AACOM provides all the advocacy tools and resources you need to get your message to Congress from wherever you are. AACOM’s Office of Government Relations has been providing its membership virtual legislative updates and advocacy trainings through member webinars and social media tools, such as a recently hosted webinar providing a deep dive on our Public Policy Agenda for the 116th Congress, the federal budget process, and ways that membership can take advantage of resources offered by our office. At the end of the week, we will be releasing an advocacy 101 training which will provide tips and strategies to help you advocate whether in or outside of DC. Look for this exciting new resource in our next issue of the Washington Insider.

Senior Vice President of Government Relations

 

Legislative Update

On The Hill

President Signs Omnibus Spending Bill; Declares National Emergency

On February 15, President Trump signed a $333 billion fiscal year (FY) 2019 spending package into law after the House and Senate agreed on a deal to pass the remainder of the FY19 appropriations bills averting another government shutdown. The measure wraps together the seven remaining spending bills for the budget year ending September 30, with most of the legislation closely resembling bills unveiled back in January. As a reminder, several appropriations bills, including Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies were signed into law last year and were not part of the partial shutdown.

Congress authorized almost $1.4 billion for the construction of new barriers along the southern border, far short of the President’s demand for $5.7 billion in border wall funding that led to the government shutdown in December. Shortly after signing the spending bill, President Trump declared a national emergency to bypass Congress and obtain additional funding for the southern border wall, a move that has already been challenged in the courts by a coalition of 16 states.

Early this week the House is expected to pass a resolution that would terminate the President’s emergency declaration. The Senate, where the resolution’s future is uncertain, will then have 18 days to take it up. If it passes both chambers, the President is expected to veto the resolution.

House Education Committee to Hold HEA Hearings

The House Committee on Education and Labor has announced plans to hold five hearings on reauthorizing the Higher Education Act (HEA), the law governing federal financial programs. The hearings, which have yet to be scheduled, will focus on the cost of college, accountability, improving student outcomes, the role of community colleges, historically black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions, and “high-quality” pathways to a degree. The hearings in the House also come as leadership in the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions negotiate their higher education bill.

AACOM continues to strongly advocate for HEA priorities impacting the osteopathic medical education community through its ED to MED campaign.

Advocating for Yourself on DO Day of Wellness

February 20 marked DO Day of Wellness, an event promoted by the Mental Health Awareness Task Force of AACOM’s Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents. Jay Olson, second-year medical student at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine of Midwestern University (AZCOM), penned an ED to MED guest blog about the importance of holistic wellness of mind, body, and spirit, and shared an overview of AZCOM’s week of activities coinciding with the event.

USDE Subcommittee Holds Second Negotiated Rulemaking Session

The U.S. Department of Education (USDE)'s Distance Learning and Innovation Subcommittee met for its second session of negotiated rulemaking on February 12 -13. The Subcommittee was asked to consider a variety of Department proposals, and the Subcommittee’s discussions focused on USDE regulatory waivers, disclosure of licensing information to students, and state authorization and enforcement. The USDE’s proposals again focused on supporting the higher education landscape with the hope of encouraging greater innovation in higher education. AACOM nominee Sue Huppert, Des Moines University, serves as a negotiator on this Subcommittee. The third negotiated rulemaking session will be held on March 11, 2019.

DHS Issues Final Rule on H-1B Visa Program

On January 30, 2019, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted its final rule amending the regulations governing the H-1B Visa Program, which allows U.S. residency programs to employ students from outside the U.S. to complete their training. Last year, AACOM heard from membership institutions regarding H-1B visa processing delays and denials and worked with DHS and other stakeholder organizations concerning the impact. The final rule, which goes into effect on April 1, 2019, reduces application costs for employers and increases the number of H-1B visas awarded to applicants with advanced degrees from U.S. colleges and universities. It also delays a new requirement that employers seeking the visas preregister ahead of the visa lottery. Due to feedback from AACOM and other stakeholders, the technicality resulting in delayed and rejected H-1B visa applications moved toward a resolution.

APh-A
On February 13th, our chapter hosted the first ever “Beards & Brownies Auction” to support APhA’s Back-the-PAC campaign. APhA-PAC is the Political Action Committee that supports candidates for federal office who support the pharmacy profession. Their main goal is provider status! The men grew out their beards and were auctioned off for someone to shave. They had to wear it for 24 hours (including Valentine’s Day!). However, they could match the bid so they didn’t have to get it shaved. There was also a brave person who auctioned his beard & head! Thanks to everyone who made this event a huge success! (Including the delicious brownies!)

Saturday, March 30, 2019 | Rennebohm Hall

Come to the UW–Madison School of Pharmacy for a hands-on experience of what it's like to change lives through medicine as a pharmacist. You'll see what PharmD student life is like and what health care career opportunities are available to School of Pharmacy grads.

This event is free, but you must register by March 20 to secure your seat.

Learn How Medicine is Made

Pharmacists can prepare personalized medications for patients. This compounding lab activity will provide an opportunity for you to make (or compound) a specific medication to treat a disease and see how pharmacists are the medication experts on the health care team.

Be on the Forefront of Patient Care

As the most accessible health care provider, pharmacists help treat and care for patients with chronic diseases like diabetes, heart failure, hypertension, and more. In this pharmacotherapy lab demonstration, you will observe and engage in a mock patient consultation.

I chose to attend the UW–Madison School of Pharmacy because I knew that it would provide excellent foundational knowledge that would lead to future success as a pharmacist. The school has always been innovative, forward-thinking, and provided excellent education. Having something of such quality in the state that I am from was an opportunity that I could not pass up.

 

– Matthew Birschbach, PharmD Class of 2018

ADEA GoDental Newsletter | Focus and Clarity

 

Mind Full or Mindful?

 

https://www.informz.net/ADEA/data/images/GoDental%20Newsletter/Jan%202019/godental.jpg?cb=229799

 

“How is your body positioned at this very moment? How are your arms and legs situated? Are your shoulders slouched? Is your head tilted downward? Regardless of the answers, you just practiced mindfulness simply by becoming aware of the current moment.

We often spend most of our day pondering the past or the future without a break to appreciate the present. We rarely allow our minds to rest for even a few minutes a day. However, being mindful does not mean having a completely blank mind. Mindfulness is purely being in the moment and aware of what is currently happening. This is the essence of meditation, one of the most common ways to practice mindfulness. Meditation does not require lighting incense, lining your room with crystals or any other stereotypical “woo-woo” rituals portrayed on TV. “It can be practiced anywhere, anytime,” says second-year dental student Gerard Scannell. Read on as he shares his advice and secrets for maintaining your focus in and out of the classroom.

The Future of Dental Technology and Innovation

The future of dentistry for newly practicing dentists and prospective dental students is bright with many amazing new technological advancements invented and tested each year. A 3D-printed dental prosthesis in an hour instead of multiple sessions may soon be a reality. An appointment with a teledentist for diagnosis could be coming as well. What about growing new teeth in your 70s and 80s? All of these advancements are possible because of emerging dental technologies. Read on for a Top Five List of Dental Innovations from ADEA GoDental blog contributor, Brittany Waddell of Denture Helper.

Why do you want to pursue dentistry?

Remember, the application process does not start when you are about to fill out an application—it really began when you made the decision to become a dentist. Think on this as you start drafting your personal statement essay. Many applicants go through several drafts after receiving feedback from advisors and peers, so it’s good to start thinking about it early.

10.  Bridgewater College (Bridgewater, VA) offers a Master of Science in Athletic Training degree. 

It’s that time of year when some graduating seniors are faced with the realization that they need a Plan B career choice.  Many health care programs have hundreds of applicants for each admitted spot.  In those circumstances, only students with extraordinary grades are considered for admissions—often never looking at the potential interpersonal skills of the applicant.  It’s not too late for your students to get admitted to a rigorous health care program in the field of athletic training.

Bridgewater College’s Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program is looking for students who are interested in working with patients of all abilities in varied locations.  Whether a student wants to work in a rehabilitation clinic, physician’s office, occupational safety, military or more traditional college and high schools, we are preparing the nimble health care practitioner of the future.

Job and salary projections for the field of athletic training continue to increase and the outcomes of the Bridgewater program are outstanding.  Over the last decade, more than 90% of our students have passed the Board of Certification, Inc. credentialing examination on the first attempt and more than 80% of our students have gotten jobs within three months of graduation.

The Bridgewater program is looking for students who want a career helping patient’s achieve their desired activity level after injury or illness.  With our rolling admissions process and commitment to looking at every applicant’s information, we seek to find the best students because of who they are and not just the grades they have achieved.

If you know any student who might be a good fit for us, have them contact Dr. Barbara Long, LAT, ATC at bhlong@bridgewater.edu or Dr. Chase Hale, LAT, ATC at chale@bridgewater.edu or 540.828.5763.  We still have a few spots open for this June 2019 start.  Athletic training is a career with a flexible and bright future and our MSAT is a small program with big experiences!

Thanks, Barbara
