It’s Crunch Time: Tell Congress to Vote No on Fast Track for TPP

Thu. April 23, 2015

An upcoming vote in the U.S. Senate to “Fast Track” the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a global free trade agreement between the U.S. and 11 Latin American and Asian countries, represents “the same old corporate-driven approach to trade that has cost America hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs,” writes IAM International President Tom Buffenbarger in a letter to Congress.
Congress needs to hear your voice. A vote could be held by the end of April.

TAKE ACTION: Tell your members of Congress to vote NO on Fast Track for the TPP.

Impact of Veterans Choice Program

Thu. April 23, 2015

The 2014 Veterans Choice Program (VCP) allows eligible Veterans to receive health care from non-VA providers in certain circumstances, such as distance from their VA facility or long waits for appointments.  CHERP Investigator Susan Zickmund, PhD, is leading a fast-track study to understand the impact of the VCP on Veterans’ satisfaction with VA Care, their Choice Act care, and their Choice act pharmacy benefits.  Drawing on the research infrastructure for the current VA Merit study--Disparities in Satisfaction with Care (DISC)--the new DISC Choice evaluation will interview Veterans and VA employees about their satisfaction with VCP.
