John V. Prunskis, MD at the White House November 4, 2019

Dr. John V. Prunskis, co-founder and co-Medical Director of the Illinois Pain Institute, Presidential Appointee U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Pain Management Best Practices Task Force (Pain Task Force) met last Monday with Joe Grogan, the President’s Assistant for Domestic Policy.

This meeting was in follow up to the HHS Pain Task Force’s final report that was submitted to Congress in May of 2019.

The two discussed possible solutions to end the current opioid crisis, the advantages of Ambulatory Surgical Centers, as well as, the significant problems that plague Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems. EHR has been implicated in higher levels of physician burnout and suicide as well as contributing to the opioid crisis.

Advancements in Regenerative Medicine and current research which was supported in the Pain Task Force report was also discussed.

Dr. Prunskis, who is Hon. Consul of Lithuania, extended an invitation to President Trump and the First Lady to the upcoming Lithuanian Folk Dance Festival in Philadelphia and also invited President Trump to visit Lithuania and considered hosting a visit in Washington D.C. of Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda.

Plans were made with other White House staff members to have follow up on these and other topics.

Politikai turi atsiminti, kad dabar Lietuva konkuruoja su visu pasauliu – būtina rūpintis verslininkų investicijomis, darbo vietų kūrimu ir atlyginimų kėlimu. Taip LRT RADIJUI sako Donaldo Trumpo visuomeninis patarėjas Jonas Prunskis. Anot jo, konkurencija yra vienas iš faktorių, lemiančių emigraciją.
