Health Care Policy and the Law symposium to be held November 16

The third Health Care Policy and the Law Symposium, entitled The Future of Health Care in Arkansas, will be held on November 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law.

This symposium series, made possible by a donation to Bowen by Blue Cross Blue Shield, is designed to foster thoughtful, intellectual debate about health care issues in Arkansas. The goal is to promote informed policy making and to establish a platform for generating research projects.

Participants can expect lecture and panel discussions about a variety of issues relating to policy, technology, and the ever-changing nature of health care, including innovation, addressing addiction, and providing services.  “Bowen is excited to host, with the financial support of Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Arkansas, the third symposium focusing on addressing Arkansas’s significant health care challenges,” said Theresa Beiner, Bowen’s dean.

Speakers include former Glen Tullman, the Chairman and CEO of Livongo Health; Cindy Gillespie, Director of Arkansas Department of Human Services; Chanda Cashen Chacón, MPH, FACHE, the executive vice president and chief operating officer for Arkansas Children’s Hospital; Cam Patterson, M.D., MBA, the chancellor of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; Troy Wells, the President and CEO of Baptist Health; and Alexander Justiss, a leading health care attorney at the Kutak Rock law firm.
