“I am proud that Health Lawyers has created a Fellows Program to recognize the significant contributions made by our lifelong leaders. They have enriched our Association and the practice of health law and we are pleased that our Fellows will play a significant role in helping to advance the Association’s mission.”
— Peter M. Leibold, AHLA Chief Executive Officer
What Does it Mean to be an AHLA Fellow?
In the Fall of 2004, AHLA established a program to recognize lifelong leaders of the Association. The Fellows Program created a forum for former volunteer leaders to remain active in AHLA where they can continue contributing to AHLA's success and support the Association's public interest mission.
Only a small percentage of AHLA's 11,000+ members are slected for Fellowship. This honor recognizes their career-long achievements, their contributions and tenure with AHLA, and their continuing service and leadership in the legal profession. AHLA Fellows are ambassadors for the Association and serve as role models and mentors to current AHLA members.
Who are They?
Fellows include past AHLA presidents, former members of the Board of DIrectors, former members of practice group and program planning committees, and others who have been very active within the Association. While representing a wide range of professional backgrounds, experience and expertise, AHLA Fellows share certain key characteristics that define them as leaders: their continued participation in AHLA initiatives and their respected leadership in the larger health law legal community.
In March, 2005, AHLA honored forty leaders into its inaugural class of AHLA Fellows. A coordinating committee was also established to oversee the program's activities and involvment of Fellows in various Association iniaitives.
