Health Lawyers Names Inaugural Class of Fellows

For Immediate Release
March 1, 2005

(WASHINGTON, DC) The American Health Lawyers Association (Health Lawyers) honored forty of its past volunteer leaders by naming them to its inaugural class of Fellows, a new designation that recognizes the expertise and many contributions of life-long leaders in the 9,500-member professional association. The Fellows program was unveiled in May 2004, the 2005 class was announced today. Peter M. Leibold, Executive Vice President/CEO for the American Health Lawyers Association congratulated the inaugural class. "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," Leibold said.

Health Lawyers' members are eligible to be named as Fellow if they have been a member of the Association for at least fifteen years; maintained an active practice, whether in a public-service, teaching or private practice setting; and have been actively involved in the activities of the Association. The Association's Board of Directors approves the yearly slate of nominees.

The 2005 class of Fellows includes twenty former presidents of the Association (or its predecessors), authors, and past leaders of Health Lawyers' practice groups, and educational programs. "We are extremely pleased that the inaugural class of Fellows will play a significant role in advancing the Association's mission for years to come," said Richard G. Cowart, Health Lawyers President and a partner at Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz PC in Nashville, TN. James Touse, Chair of the Fellows Task Force, added "The inaugural class reflects the Association's commitment to diversity and excellence; it is an extremely prestigious group of leaders and we look forward to their many contributions as Health Lawyers Fellows."
