Yesterday, February 9, the Senate HELP Committee passed bill S.800, which enhances the stature and visibility of medical rehabilitation research at the world’s premier medical research agency - the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Members of the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Coalition (DRRC) commended the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) for approving a modified version of S. 800, the “Enhancing the Stature and Visibility of Medical Rehabilitation Research at the NIH Act” to improve, coordinate, and enhance medical rehabilitation research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Introduced by Senators Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Michael Bennet (D-CO), the bill is enthusiastically supported by the DRRC membership because the time is now to enhance the stature and visibility of medical rehabilitation research at the world’s premier medical research agency.

AAP is a member of the DRRC Steering Committee along with AAPM&R, ACRM, AOTA, APTA, ASHA, and BIA.
