Dean Horace Anderson  Health Law and Policy Summit

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University hosted a Health Law and Policy Summit bringing together healthcare professionals and lawyers to discuss key legal issues for operations and transactions and for the delivery of healthcare in today’s changing landscape. Co-sponsored by Pace University’s College of Health Professions and the Westchester County Association, the event offered NYS Attorney CLE credit and included two thoughtful panel discussions led by Haub Law faculty who teach in the Law School’s Advanced Certificate in Health Law and Policy. The certificate program was recently expanded to include a new part-time, fully online credential designed for working lawyers, as well as health care professionals and administrators who require legal and policy knowledge to adapt to changes in the industry and is scheduled to launch in Fall 2022. 

“Regulatory and compliance matters, health equity and environmental health issues, all influence how healthcare organizations go about their work, and how their attorneys advise them,” said Dean Horace Anderson Jr., Dean of Haub Law during his welcome remarks. “The Health Law and Policy Summit provides a glimpse into the current issues impacting the healthcare industry which are a focus of our Advanced Certificate in Health Law and Policy program.”

Moderated by Professor James Toomey, a Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School who will join the Haub Law faculty as an Assistant Professor in the coming year, the panels examined how healthcare organizations can meet their current responsibilities, prepare for public health challenges, and seek more equitable health policies. Panelists explored the lifecycle of a business transaction and legal implications for lawyers and professionals working in the field as well as patient care, including lack of access to care, long-term care workforce issues, and end-of-life rules. 

The Health Law and Policy Summit panelists included Barbara Atwell, Haub Law Associate Professor; Lauren Breslow, philanthropic consultant and Haub Law Adjunct Professor; Margaret M. Flint, Haub Law Professor of Law Emerita; Linda Martin, Chief Compliance Officer at CareOne and Haub Law Adjunct Professor; Steven Chananie, Special Counsel, Sheppard Mullin and Haub Law Adjunct Professor, and Dale C. Van Demark, a partner at McDermott Will & Emery and Adjunct Professor at Haub Law.
