USA Leaders Visit White House to Discuss Health Policies

Leaders from USA Health recently traveled to the White House to meet with Andrew Bremberg who serves as an assistant to U.S. President Donald Trump and also serves as director of the Domestic Policy Council (DPC).

According to Happy Fulford, executive director of governmental relations at USA, the meeting with Bremberg in Washington provided the opportunity to discuss important policies that directly impact our health system.

“Academic medical centers have complex funding mechanisms that relate to our teaching, research and healthcare delivery missions,” said Danny Rickert, chief policy officer for USA Health.  “As healthcare policy decisions are made on a national level, it is extremely important for our institution to be engaged in the process.”

The DPC is the primary forum used by the President of the United States for considering domestic policy matters, excluding economic matters.
