On Tuesday, Jan. 10, AIHA’s new director of Government Relations, Mark Ames, shared his strategic priorities for the association during a 40-minute town hall conference call with volunteer and local section leaders. In addition to introducing himself, Ames addressed questions such as:
- How will you increase the awareness and visibility of the IH/OH profession at the state and federal levels?
- How will you address the concerns of IH/OH professionals regarding the inadequate funding of IH/OH research at the state and local levels?
- What can government affairs do to assist those in academia on educating their representatives at the state and federal levels on the importance of supporting IH/OH-related education and programs?
A recording of the town hall is available online. (Please note: A registration screen will appear, but only your name is required to access the recording.)
