      The Health Law Section’s fall conference will address population health issues in a changing legal landscape from multiple perspectives. With a focus on the benefits of collaboration and public/private partnerships, experts from diverse fields including disaster preparedness, Medicaid/Medicare managed care, and delivery system reform (DSRIP) will discuss how this evolving area impacts the practice of health law.
