A Message From the Editor

Lots going on in D.C. this week, including a crackdown on the sharing of sensitive health care data, increased scrutiny for PBMs, and new guidance on Medicare drug rebates. Meanwhile, our readers recently weighed in on the growing role that advisors and other benefits professionals are playing in the public sphere. Whether on social media, at industry conferences, working within local communities, or advocating through government, what types of approaches and strategies are making a difference? And are there dangers and drawbacks to this more public approach?
