Health Care Reform, Attorneys, and The Role of the Counselor

Governor Tommy G. Thompson

Governor Tommy G. Thompson

When it comes to determining the future of health care, employment, and the areas where they intersect, all of the predictions and opinions being tossed around can seem confusing and even conflicting. Former Wisconsin Governor and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson will use his unique experience and perspective to help bring these issues into focus for attorneys. Thompson will share observations on proposed sweeping changes to health care in the United States. In addition, he'll discuss the role of attorneys in helping employers and health care entities manage new reforms in the face of rapid changes and political controversy.
