Virtual EMI 2020 Conference

As many of you are likely aware, the Health Law Section ("HLS") made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Conference on Emerging Issues in Healthcare Law ("EMI"). While we are very disappointed in the loss of our live conference and annual meeting, we are now offering a Virtual EMI 2020 Conference with a series of webinars presenting many of EMI's sessions over the coming weeks.
