  • Several Bills See Movement Prior to Summer Recess: Lawmakers are wrapping up work before summer recess and campaign season, keeping the Ohio Chapter very busy in the process. Lawmakers are expected to wrap up work on a state capital budget that will include approximately $150 million in community project spending as well as $700 million in One Time Strategic Community Investment Fund appropriations. A handful of other bills are expected to reach the Governor’s Desk, including some healthcare-related measures: HB 49 (Hospital Price Transparency), HB 141 (Copay Fairness Act), and SB 144 (Pharmacy Vaccines).
  • Promoting Wellness: The Critical Role of School Health: School health, and school-based health centers, have been in Ohio news more than ever in the last couple of years – most recently, with the March announcement of $64 million in state funds to support school-based health in Appalachian counties. This leads to some important questions from pediatricians. What does this mean for members of Ohio AAP? Are pediatricians in competition with school health? Is there a role for pediatricians in school health?
