Message from the Chair

Adam Garner

I am excited to serve as the Chair of the Health and Disability Insurance Committee for the 2020-21 bar year. I want to thank my predecessor, Sherril Colombo, for her great leadership last year and her continued mentorship as I assume the Chair of the Committee. I also want to thank our Chair-Elect, Nicole True, for her invaluable assistance with the Committee. Leading the Committee is a significant undertaking and is not possible without the support of the leadership team, the ABA’s support personnel, and each of our Committee members.
