Golden Valley, MN – Medical Alley Association President & CEO Shaye Mandle released the following statement following House passage of HR6, the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act:
The Medical Alley Association applauds House passage of HR6, a bill designed to provide new resources and initiatives to help our nation’s families that have been impacted by the opioid epidemic and substance use. From expanded telehealth services to the opportunities for increased access to non-opioid pain management options, this comprehensive legislation will provide significant assistance with the current crisis and will set the nation on a stronger path to fewer addictions and better overall health outcomes for the population. We are grateful for Congressman Erik Paulsen’s leadership on several of the key measures that were included. We are also thankful for Congresswoman McCollum and Congressmen Emmer, Lewis, and Peterson’s support of this critical legislation.
Since 1984, the Medical Alley Association has been the front door to Medical Alley. We are the collective voice and expertise of Medical Alley; the strategy, implementation and execution vehicle of the Medical Alley Community. We deliver the collective influence, intelligence and interactions that support Medical Alley’s global leadership
