Will America’s Public Health Reckoning Ever Come?

Former Senior Policy Analyst
Drew Keyes is a former Senior Policy Analyst at the Paragon Health Institute. Drew brings nearly a decade of experience as a Congressional staffer, where he worked to advance conservative, free-market principles.

Paragon’s Drew Keyes was quoted in the STAT story “Will America’s public health reckoning ever come?”

From the article:

[Drew] Keyes, a former Republican Study Committee policy staffer who now works at Paragon Health Institute, said he’s working in a similar vein on developing concrete policy frameworks to address the distrust of public health agencies that has emerged in the Republican voting base.

“We know there’s this frustration, and there’s distrust. What kind of reforms can we do to build back that trust?” Keyes said.

One opportunity for the 118th Congress to address public health issues is the reauthorization of the Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness Act, which expires at the end of September. Lawmakers could choose to tack on related reforms, but the policy would have to be bipartisan to pass both the House and the Senate.

Drew’s quote reups ideas from “A Health Policy Agenda for the 118th Congress,” a policy brief he wrote with Paragon’s Brian Blase.
