    Cancer Legal Advocacy Workshop

    Manchester Grand Hyatt, 9 AM GMT

    American Bar Association Health Law Section

    17th Annual Conference on Emerging Issues in Healthcare Law

     

    Sponsored by: ABA Task Force on Substance Use Disorders and Mental Health

     

    According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.6 million people in the U.S. were likely to be diagnosed with some form of cancer during 2015.  Of the women diagnosed with cancer, 29% would have had breast cancer. This means that you or someone you know has had or likely will have direct experience with cancer.  Cancer patients face a variety of legal problems related to their illness, such as issues with insurance coverage and payment, treatment, employment, family, and mental health and end of life arrangements. There are support organizations that use volunteer attorneys to help cancer patients with issues like these.  The panel will review relevant laws and practices to provide attorneys with awareness and understanding of issues patients face to enable them to volunteer and provide legal assistance to cancer patients, as well as to provide support to family members or friends going through diagnosis and treatment.
