O'Neill Institute Summer Programs 2014

 

The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University invites you to our 2014 Summer Programs. Now in our third year, we are excited to present two programs this summer: (1) Emerging Issues in Food and Drug Law and (2) US Health Reform – The Affordable Care Act.

The Summer Programs convene leading practitioners, policymakers, advocates and academics in food and drug law and US healthcare reform for a series of interactive lectures, panel discussions, and case studies. Held during consecutive weeks, July 14-18 (Emerging Issues in Food and Drug Law) and July 21-25 (US Health Reform – The Affordable Care Act), interested participants may attend one or both programs. Invited speakers include current and former officials from HHS, the FDA, the FTC, the EPA, as well as former U.S. Congressional staff involved in the adoption and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
