AHLA Statement on Diversity & Inclusion
In principle and in practice, the American Health Lawyers Association values and seeks diverse and inclusive participation within the Association regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national origin, or disability. The Association welcomes all members as it leads health law to excellence through education, information, and dialogue.

As part of AHLA's initiative to cultivate more diversity and inclusion among attorneys practicing health law, the Association is working to provide opportunities for talented law students of diverse backgrounds so that they can learn more about this segment of the legal profession. Find out more about the AHLA Diversity internship.
One of the ways that the Association seeks to celebrate diversity and inclusion among our membership is through the sponsorship of special receptions at several in-person programs. These Celebrate Diversity & Inclusion Receptions are sponsored by AHLA’s Diversity+Inclusion Council.
Receptions are held during the Fundamentals of Health Law Program; the Physicians and Hospitals Law Institute; at the Long Term Care and the Law Program; at the Institute on Medicare and Medicaid Payment Issues; and at the Association’s Annual Meeting.
Attendees at in-person programs should make plans to attend these special receptions. They are a wonderful way to wrap up the day. All are invited to celebrate and exchange ideas to further the Association's commitment to diversity and inclusion.
