On November 3, 2023, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies (LHHSE) released explanatory materials (page 102) to accompany the LHHSE spending bill (H.R. 5894) that again attests to the importance and need for osteopathic research and representation within the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The language was sought by AACOM and builds on continued advocacy and past appropriations cycle victories. Similar language was already included in the Senate Report 118-84 (page 129) accompanying S. 2624, as amended.
