Polsky, an expert in health care policy and health economics, is one of 15 members of the committee. The group is co-chaired by William Foege, emeritus presidential distinguished professor of international health at the Emory Rollins School of Public Health, and Helene Gayle, president and CEO of the Chicago Community Trust. The group includes experts from a wide range of disciplines, including global and domestic public health, vaccinology, epidemiology, health equity and disparities, health economics, obstetrics and pediatrics, ethics, legal and regulatory issues, occupational health, operations and systems research, and community engagement and risk communication.
Later this summer, the committee will put out a draft report for public comment and discuss its recommendations at a public workshop. The report’s final version is to be released early this fall.
