17th Annual Health Law Symposium: The Impact of Fraud and Abuse Law on Health Equity

Presented in conjunction with Annals of Health Law & Life Sciences

Friday, October 27, 2023 
9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.


About the Symposium

This year’s Symposium will explore the intersection of healthcare fraud and abuse with health equity. It will examine the ways in which fraudulent healthcare practices may exacerbate health disparities and cause patient harm, as well how enforcement practices may either exacerbate or ameliorate disparities in access to care. The Symposium will highlight the need for broader changes in the fraud and abuse space to reflect evolving healthcare needs, delivery systems, and equity concerns.

About Annals of Health Law & Life Sciences

Twice yearly (Winter and Summer) the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy publishes Annals of Health Law & Life Sciences, The Health Policy and Law Review of Loyola University Chicago. Annals contains articles of general interest in health law, which are deemed by the editors to make a contribution to the teaching, practice, and/or public policy surrounding health law. Past volumes have focused on corporate, regulatory, bioethical, and pharmaceutical issues, as well as patient rights and advocacy. Through this publication, health law students are afforded the opportunity to edit a law review article.

Advance Directive is an online publication of Annals of Health Law & Life Sciences, which is also published twice yearly (Fall and Spring). Similar to AnnalsAdvance Directive publishes articles that provide insight into the divergent areas of health law. Advance Directive allows health law students to write short articles regarding current health law topics, which are often at the crux of debate amongst legislators, practitioners, and academics.
