Last week, a bipartisan bill was introduced–the Finding Orphan-disease Remedies with Antifungal Research and Development Act (FORWARD Act) of 2021.
The legislation, introduced by members of the Congressional Valley Fever Task Force, is designed to address challenges related to detecting, treating and ultimately eliminating Valley fever by incentivizing antifungal therapeutics and vaccine development.
Joining me today to talk about Valley fever and the FORWARD Act is John Galgiani, MD. Dr Galgiani is a Professor of Medicine and Director of the Valley Fever Center for Excellence at the University of Arizona.
