PYA Thought Leaders Collaborate with AHLA on Third Annual Podcast Series

In January, the American Health Law Association (AHLA) published its annual “Top 10 Issues in Health Law” article in Health Law Connections magazine. The article covers issues such as reproductive rights, telehealth, antitrust, data privacy, long-term care reform, and more. Similar to last year’s article, AHLA will run a series of podcasts addressing each of the 10 topics. In this series, PYA thought leaders join other health law experts for in-depth discussions on the impact such issues have on the healthcare industry.
