Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Health Subcommittee Chairwoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) announced today that the Health Subcommittee will hold a legislative hearing on Wednesday, October 20, at 10:30 a.m. (EDT) in the John D. Dingell Room, 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, "Enhancing Public Health: Legislation to Protect Children and Families.”
“As the nation continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s vital that Congress build upon our efforts to strengthen our public health system, support the search for cures and treatments, and ensure patients can access the care they need,” Pallone and Eshoo said. “Next week, the Health Subcommittee will hear from health experts and advocates on legislation that will advance scientific research, improve public health approaches, and expand access to care for Americans.”
This will be a hybrid hearing that includes both in person and remote member attendance via Cisco Webex video conferencing. Members of the public may view the hearing via live webcast accessible on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s website. Please note the webcast will not be available until the hearing begins.
