AHLA Annual Conference

July 1, 2013 – July 3, 2013
As the culmination of AHLA's educational year, the Annual Meeting provided a forum for networking and interaction with colleagues, friends, and family as well as an outstanding educational event.
The Monday morning Plenary Session opened as an annual favorite, the Year in Review, presented by Elizabeth Carder-Thompson and Jack Schroder, who humorously yet accurately reviewed the past 12 months’ top legal issues. The Year in Review paved the way for outstanding Keynote Addresses by United States General and CEO of One Mind for Research, Peter W. Chiarelli and Former Congressman, Sponsor of the Mental Health Parity Act and Co-founder of One Mind for Research, Patrick J. Kennedy. Session topics covered fraud and abuse enforcement, reimbursement, tax, privacy and security, antitrust, transactional issues, life sciences, labor and employment, alternative dispute resolution, legal ethics and more, which included representatives from the DOJ, OIG, CMS, IRS and FTC adding their perspectives.
