Advocacy

APTR seeks to protect and expand the partnership between its members and federal agencies. APTR advocates increasing federal support for prevention and public health education, research and training.

  • Expanded opportunities for public health research
  • Increased Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funding to assure that research findings are translated into effective state, local and community programs.
  • Working to ensure health discretionary spending remains highly visible as Congress and the Administration set federal budget priorities.
