What to watch out for at the POLITICO 2023 Health Summit
Written by admin

The White House, Congress and regulators will need to make critical decisions in the coming months and years to:

Ensure the solvency of health care programs for retirees and at-risk families even though many Democrats want health care to be free for all;

Ensure that the current regulatory framework is up to the task of reviewing and approving increasingly complex cell and gene therapy products developed by the pharmaceutical industry;

Restore lost trust in government when it comes to messaging and handling public health emergencies.

Other speakers on Wednesday include Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Sag.); Danielle Carnival, deputy assistant to the president for the Cancer Moonshot; Kate McEvoy, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors; Bakul Patel, head of digital health regulatory strategy at Google; and Rep.
