Emergency Preparedness and Response in a Pandemic: A Hospital Lawyer’s Guide

October 7, 2020 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM


Goodwin's Delphine O'Rourke will be a panelist on the "Emergency Preparedness and Response in a Pandemic: A Hospital Lawyer’s Guide" webinar put on by the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA). 

This webinar will build on the Public Health System Affinity Group’s Emergency Preparedness and Response Bootcamp held in 2019 and the Novel Coronavirus Legal Preparedness Webinar held in February 2020 and will provide hospital and health system counsel with an overview of new considerations and potentially necessary modifications to emergency preparedness and response plans when they are to be activated against the backdrop of the COVID pandemic and public health emergency. As the COVID-19 emergency continues, U.S. hospitals and health systems face an increasing probability of experiencing hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes and other natural and man-made disasters while still facing stresses from COVID-19, including ongoing community social distancing and quarantine requirements and financial and health issues. 

Registration is open to AHLA members only.
