Large cutbacks in the Federal workforce are in President Trump’s budget for FY 2017-18, including substantial reductions in the workforce of E.P.A., NOAA, and the State Department, together with reductions in contracts. Health care made available by the Federal government is likely to be greatly impacted which can result in extensive cutbacks in the medical field. This may be felt keenly in the Washington area but also extend to other areas in the United States.

Ms. Jeannette Chapman and Dr. Gregory Acs will explore the impact in the Washington area and beyond of these potential cutbacks. Please join us for this interesting evening.
