H.R. 3999—The Trauma Research and Access to Urgent Medical Attention Act of 2004

On March 18, 2004, Representative Jim Greenwood (R-PA) introduced H.R. 3999, the Trauma Research and Access to Urgent Medical Attention Act of 2004. The bill would amend the Public Health Service Act to mandate that the Secretary, acting through the Director of NIH, establish a comprehensive program of basic and clinical research on trauma, including the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of trauma-related injuries. H.R. 3999 would require the Director to establish and implement a plan for carrying out the activities of the comprehensive program, taking into consideration the recommendations contained in the report of the NIH Trauma Research Task Force. In addition, the bill would require the Director to collaborate and coordinate activities with NIH components involved in trauma research. Upon introduction, the bill was cosponsored by Representatives Michael Bilirakis (R-FL) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and was referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
