Moving the Needle: Navigating Disability Law in the Health Care Setting

The Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy presents a three-part CLE series:

Moving the Needle: Navigating Disability Law in the Health Care Setting

Wednesday, April 26 | 6-8 p.m. 

Wednesday, May 17 | 6-8 p.m. 

Tuesday, June 20 | 6-8 p.m.

Hofstra Law School, South Campus | Room 308 | Hempstead, NY 11549

The program focuses on the needs and rights of people with disabilities who work or hope to work as clinicians and on the needs and rights of patients with disabilities. The percentage of people with disabilities who work in health care is lower than the percentage of people with disabilities in the nation’s population (4 percent and 6 percent, respectively). In real numbers, this means that 207,000 people with disabilities are employed as health care practitioners in a total workforce of about 8,825,000 people.

Join us as we explore the law and legal strategies, as well as ethical questions that may arise, when representing patients or clients with disabilities.

Cost

$180 for all three days or $75 for each individual day

CLE

3 CLE in areas of professional practice and 3 CLE in Ethics available for all three days. 1 CLE in areas of professional practice and 1 CLE in Ethics available for each individual day.

Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credits

The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University is certified by the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board as an accredited provider of continuing legal education (CLE) in the state of New York.

New York CLE credits are available to satisfy the mandatory, nontransitional requirement for attorneys attending the program.
