Back to We Are AHLA

Remembering Art Bernstein 

 On August 25, 2018, we lost an AHLA family member; we mourn the passing of our colleague and friend Art Bernstein.

Our staff is planning a tribute to Art that will apear in the November issue of AHLA Connections magazine.  We invite you to share your recollections of Art for the benefit of his family and colleagues.  You can send your tributes to Ana Greene at agreene@healthlawyers.org. And, take a moment to re-read Art's Q&A from our Past Presidents Memory Book and his interview from the 50th Annivserary History Project. 

Thank you.
