Share this page

According to The Hill:

President Trump signed a bill Wednesday allowing terminally ill patients access to experimental medical treatments not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

Dubbed ‘right to try,’ the law’s passage was a major priority of Trump and Vice President Pence, as well as congressional Republicans.”

ANCOR reported on the passage of this bill in Congress last week because of its possible application to some developmental disability diagnoses.
