HPAC Update:

What’s Next:

  • Continue with original objectives

  • Begin ground work in areas identified as Long Range Opportunities:

    • Identify the issues/barriers/opportunities within Education, Legislative, and Governance & Regulatory

      • No solutions or recommendations, just “getting a handle on” and putting in perspective of a bigger picture or goal.

    • Start shaping a process/script for a “per state” program

      • All politics are local

      • All states appear to have the same issues, different degrees of separation

      • Easier to assemble teams around a common program than to have every group building their individual silos of interest
