The USBJI invites suggestions on the musculoskeletal (MSK) health issues federal and state candidates for election in 2020 should include in their health policy proposals and programs.
What are the important issues and priorities that must be addressed to improve care for patients, permit innovation and answer critical questions; ultimately to lower the burden and impact of bone and joint disorders?
Your suggestions will contribute to position papers to be presented to candidates seeking election. As newly elected officials begin their service and establish health policy, it is important that America’s most prevalent and disabling musculoskeletal disorders are front and center, and included in policy discussions in a meaningful way.
Musculoskeletal disorders are generally under-appreciated, under-resourced and under-funded. This is an opportunity for them to be included at the start of a re-elected or new administration.
