“Mitchell Hamline’s Health Law Institute provides students a wonderful opportunity to dig into the fascinating world of health law. Stories involving the provision of and payment for health care occupy the news every day. The Health Law Institute equips its students with a deeper understanding of health law generally and allows them to focus in growing areas such as health care compliance. It is an honor to serve on the advisory board and to add my perspective to the Institute’s activities.”
