Annual Meeting 2012


June 25-27, 2012
Chicago, IL

Program Description

As the culmination of AHLA's educational year, the Annual Meeting provides a forum for networking and interaction with colleagues, friends, and family as well as an outstanding educational event.

The Monday morning Plenary Session opens with an annual favorite, the Year in Review, presented by Elizabeth Carder-Thompson and Jack Schroder, who humorously yet accurately will review the past 12 months’ top legal issues. The Year in Review will pave the way for two outstanding keynote speakers, Dr. Donald M. Berwick and Dr. Mark B. McClellan, whose health law policy perspectives will focus on the future of healthcare reform and the ramifications of a Supreme Court decision. Session topics cover fraud and abuse enforcement, reimbursement, tax, privacy and security, antitrust, transactional issues, life sciences, labor and employment, alternative dispute resolution, legal ethics and more, which will include representatives from the DOJ, OIG, CMS, IRS and FTC adding their perspectives.
