Attorney-Adviser U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), Office of the General Counsel, Civil Rights Division.

Angela Scott is an accomplished lawyer with over 15 years of experience within the federal government. Currently, Angela Scott serves as attorney and adviser for the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), Office of the General Counsel, Civil Rights Division.

In this role she addresses compliant investigations, compliance reviews and settlement negotiations before formal enforcement proceedings. Ms. Scott participates in all aspects of the Administrative Law and Enforcement process for the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at HHS.

Further, she advises OCR on complaint investigations, compliance reviews and negotiations prior to formal enforcement proceedings, including issues arising out of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Age Discrimination Act, Section 1808(c) of the Small Business Job Protection Act of 1996, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) and the Hill- Burton Act, and Section 1557 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.

From 2007 to 2017, Ms. Scott served as the designated HHS Federal Staff Liaison to the United States Access Board, an independent Federal agency devoted to accessibility for people with disabilities. She represented the HHS General Counsel in her capacity as the Federal Member of the U.S. Access Board. Ms. Scott helped assess compliance to the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Guidelines, and helped amend the implementation regulations for Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

In her role as HHS Federal Staff Liaison, she drafted the accessibility standards through administrative rulemaking processes. Ms. Scott coordinated interagency consensus on Medical Diagnostic Equipment (MDE) rulemaking, including DOJ, the Food and Drug Administration, the Office of Disability, and the HHS Office for Civil Rights. Additionally, she served as the HHS representative to the Board’s MDE Ad Hoc Committee.

Ensuring that people with disabilities are properly accommodated is one of her passions. The cause is close to her heart because her mother was diagnosed with ALS in 1999.

Ms. Scott considers her most significant achievement thus far was the creation of the 10weeks10deeds initiative. 10weeks10deeds asked volunteers to undertake a minimum of 10 public service and programmatic activities for 10 weeks. The initiative ran from 2010 to 2014 with its start date on Martin Luther King Jr. National Day each year.
