June is PTSD Awareness Month.
The National Center for PTSD promotes awareness of PTSD and effective treatments throughout the year. Starting in 2010, Congress named
June 27th PTSD Awareness Day (S. Res. 455). Since then, during the month of June, we ask everyone to help us raise PTSD awareness.
The purpose of PTSD Awareness Month is to encourage everyone to raise public awareness of PTSD and its effective treatments so that everyone
can help people affected by PTSD.
LifeScience Moment: President Clinton directed Medicare program to reimburse providers for cost of routine patient care in clinical trials.
On June 7, 2000, President Clinton issued an Executive Memorandum that directed
the Medicare program to revise its payment policy and immediately begin to explicitly
reimburse providers for the cost of routine patient care associated with participation
in clinical trials, and to take additional action to promote the participation of
Medicare beneficiaries in clinical trials for all diseases.
This action followed an Institute of Medicine report that recommended policy
changes to encourage greater use of clinical trials by older Americans.

"It is a popular delusion that the scientific enquirer is under an obligation not to go beyond generalisation of observed facts...but anyone who is practically acquainted with scientific work is aware that those who refuse to go beyond the facts, rarely get as far."
