HHS to Collaborate with Astrazeneca for Biodefense Preparedness Plan
Sep 24 15
HHS will collaborate with AstraZeneca on an antibiotic initiative as part of a biodefense preparedness plan for dealing with public health threats. The public-private partnership will bring together for the second time the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority wing of the HHS with a drug company to develop investigational medications that could potentially be used to ward off bioterrorism and deadly bacterial infections or pandemics. With $50 million in up-front BARDA funding and up to $170 million down the road, depending on the products, the agreement is a turn toward investing in a roster of drugs, rather than single products to speed up the process and create more options. HHS and AZ have eyed ATM-AVI (Aztreonam and Avibactam) to study its use against meliodosis, glanders and the plague.
Department of Health and Human Services Announces Resignation of Yolanda Webb as Director of the Developmental Disabilities Division
Sep 10 15
Yolanda Webb has resigned as director of the developmental disabilities division of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Webb's resignation came as a surprise, and leaves a leadership vacuum atop a division that oversees services to people with developmental disabilities. That includes 116 residents of the Beatrice State Developmental Center and 4,400 people being cared for through community services, for which there is a large waiting list. In her resignation letter, released by the governor's office, Webb gave few details about her sudden departure, though she was complimentary of the Nebraska agency. The Beatrice center has been on the rebound after seven years of federal oversight ended last month. The federal spotlight came in response to a pattern of abuse and neglect of residents. Recently, though, a center employee was charged with abusing a resident of the center. And the Beatrice center has been without a director since early this year. Webb was hired in July to the $142,500 a year job by Gov. Pete Ricketts and began working on August 31. She had worked in the developmental disabilities field in Louisiana and Ohio, most recently serving as the head of a social services agency based in New Orleans with a $27 million budget. Webb also had other interests. she founded a line of cosmetics and had served as publisher and editor-in-chief of Lon Magazine. Courtney Miller was appointed as acting director. Miller is currently the deputy director for programs within the Division of Medicaid and Long-Term Care at HHS. Jodi Fenner served as director of the developmental disabilities division for six years until Ricketts, who took office in January, decided to replace her.
