New Government Affairs website offers real-time legislative updates

USF Health has lauched a  new Government Affairs website,  http://hscweb3.hsc.usf.edu/govaffairs/.

The 2014 Florida Legislative Session kicked off March 4 and is scheduled to end May 2.   The new website will provide updates in real time on issues that impact USF Health and its associated professions, as well as ways to actively engage with our Government Affairs team in public policy and the legislative process.  The site includes  noteworthy items from committee meetings, updates on our fiscal and substantive priorities, a brief of activities by the USF Health lobbying team and more.
