On June 18, I met with Melissa Hendricks’ Science Policy, Funding, and Politics class from The Johns Hopkins University, my alma mater. The course is offered through the Johns Hopkins Graduate Science Writing Program and is designed to give aspiring science and medical writers a behind-the-scenes look at the processes that shape the nation's science policy and determine its Research & Development (R&D) funding.

Part of Rep. Harris' June 9th interview with WBAL Radio aired on the TV station's 11 p.m. newscast that same day. The Congressman reacted to the Department of Veterans Affairs' nationwide audit, which revealed that the Maryland VA Health System has the 4th-longest wait times in the nation for new primary care patients.
