Upcoming IACC Full Committee Meeting – July 19, 2011

2 Jul

The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee will meet again on July 19. Should the Combating Autism Reauthorization Act (CARA) not pass (or another bill to continue the IACC), this will likely be the final IACC meeting.

The meetings are long, but I have found them to be very worthwhile to listen in or review later (when audio/video is posted on the NIH website). It is interesting to see how the process works and what topics are discussed and prioritized.

Here is the announcement:
