This conference, the next installment of Hofstra Law’s Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy Thought Leadership Series will explore the role that politics plays in shaping visions of healthcare and in implementing or precluding the implementation of ethical responses to challenges within the nation’s healthcare system.
