Strength Through Adversity
The past year has been difficult. The nation is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, reckoning with centuries-old racial tension, and individuals are struggling with everything from maintaining their mental health to finding employment. And yet through it all, the health law profession has been providing analysis, assessing risk, ensuring compliance, and making recommendations to their organizations and clients, ultimately leading to better health outcomes for all.
The profession has modeled how innovation and excellence can emerge through adversity.
Join us for a week of increasing awareness of this integrated and integral profession within the health care industry, highlighting programs that create new opportunities for entry into the profession, showcasing organizations/firms dedicated to employing these professionals, and elevating this community’s contributions to the health care industry.
