Every year, the Annual Meeting offers an array of health law topics that will appeal to anyone practicing in this area – this year is no different! Offering the most current information and analysis of myriad legal issues the health care industry is facing in a thoughtful, practical solution-oriented way, you will not want to miss the Annual Meeting.

We will kick off the program with two incredibly interesting keynote speakers, both of whom are working on innovations for how we deliver health care. Stephanie Devaney, PhD , Deputy Director, All of Us Research Program at NIH, will discuss precision medicine initiatives and the impact on how research is conducted. Suchi Saria, PhD, a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University, will share her work on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to advance diagnosis and treatment.

There will be 50 in-depth breakout sessions on health information and technology, transactional issues, reimbursement, tax, antitrust, fraud and compliance, labor and employment, and more. Whether you represent physicians, payers, hospitals and health systems, long term care providers, academic medical centers, or life sciences companies, there are sessions that will address the issues your clients are facing.

We are very excited to be in Chicago and we will take advantage of being there! All three days will include networking opportunities for attendees to catch up with colleagues, learn from each other, and meet new people from around the country. From the breakfasts each morning to the Practice Group luncheons, and the receptions each evening, there will be plenty of time to network in this ideal setting. The Welcome Reception starts at 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 24 and the program will end at around 1:30 pm on Wednesday, June 27.

The Annual Meeting provides a forum for networking and interaction with colleagues, friends, and family as well as an outstanding educational event - Don't miss it!
