80th ACD Meeting
Shalala Gives Advisors Frank Summary of Current Events

By Rich McManus

HHS Secretary Donna Shalala dropped in on the 80th meeting of the advisory committee to the NIH director on June 8 to offer encouragement and congratulations on a variety of topics including the FY 2001 budget, NIH's effort to bolster oversight of human gene transfer, the progress of the Human Genome Project, and NIH's initiative to reduce health disparities. She also expanded upon and applauded President Clinton's decision, announced that morning, to extend Medicare coverage to participants in clinical trials, and answered questions in a relaxed and freewheeling session. "You've had me as candid as I've ever been," she enthused at the end of a visit in which she also announced her intention "to leave NIH in the best shape this institution has ever been in."
