Joe is Director of Government Relations at Powers, Pyles, Sutter, & Verville PC (“Powers Law”) in Washington, DC, with expertise in federal health care, rehabilitation, and disability policy and advocacy. He is also a co-coordinator for the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Coalition (DRRC), a coalition of more than 20 national non-profit organizations committed to improving the science of disability, independent living, and rehabilitation. Its mission is to maximize the return on the federal investment in disability, independent living, and rehabilitation research and development with the goal of improving the ability of Americans with disabilities to live and function as independently as possible. ACRM is a founding member of the DRRC and has helped lead the Coalition as a Steering Committee member since its inception. In recent years, the DRRC has spearheaded engagement with federal research agencies (including NIH and NIDILRR) as well as other key offices in the Biden Administration and Congress regarding the need for explicit research and policy priorities relating to the direct and indirect impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals with disabilities and/or pre-existing chronic health conditions.
