Alexis Trent (IMSD, 6th Cohort)

Alexis Trent attended the Public Policy Institute hosted by The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) on October 30-31, 2017.

From Alexis: 
"I was able to hear professionals from Medtronic, Food and Drug Administration, a  former Congressman, and current presidents of health-related organizations speak about the influence of policy and the current climate under the federal administration. The conversations consisted of the Affordable Health Care (ACA) Act and effects possible laws could create as well as the federal budget impacts on research as a whole. This workshop provided me with further insight into regulatory affairs and government relations which is a career interest of mine. "
