Health Care Access: How Are the Courts Shaping our Future?
October 21, 8:45 am – 4:45 pm PDT
A Community & Continuing Legal Education Webinar
NoHLA is holding a Continuing Legal Education program in October that might be of interest to your students and faculty. The CLE webinar, “Health Care Access: How Are the Courts Shaping our Future?” will explore the impact that court decisions are having on healthcare access, especially for vulnerable populations.
Our keynote, “The Future of Reproductive Health: Dobbs and Implications for the States,” will feature Professor Risa Kaufman, Director of US Human Rights, Center for Reproductive Rights, and Kim Clark, Director of Litigation, Legal Voice, looking ahead to what can be done to mitigate the impact of the recent Supreme Court decision reversing Roe v. Wade on access to abortion, miscarriage, and potentially other health care services.
Panelists from national advocacy organizations will unpack recent Supreme Court developments related to civil rights and immigrant access to health coverage. We will also have a panel of Washington state agency leaders discussing administrative and legislative developments that affect health policy and local experts considering efforts in Washington state aimed at reducing medical debt. An ethics session will explore diversity/anti-bias considerations for lawyers representing clients.
