Call for HLS Updates Authors

We are gearing up for a new year of Florida Bar Health Law Updates and are looking for volunteers to write articles for the publication throughout the year.  The Florida Bar Health Law Section (“HLS”) Update is a bi-monthly electronic publication emphasizing various, emerging topics in health law, including, but not limited to, compliance, fraud and abuse, facility and professional licensure, life sciences, privacy and security, public health, transactions, and payor issues.  The articles are short entries (typically a maximum of three to five paragraphs) that include an overview and brief explanation of an important topic in health law.  For previous examples of HLS Updates, please see previous issues at this link: http://www.flabarhls.org/news/health-law-monthly-updates

If you are interested in writing for the HLS Updates, please send an email to Flabarupdates@gmail.com and specify which area you would like to cover.  If you do not specify a practice area, we will select one for you.  Please note, we will try and place you in the practice area you selected; however, if demand is high for certain areas, we may have to assign people to practice areas they did not choose.  Once we have assembled our team of writers, we will e-mail you with writing guidelines and your assigned coverage area. 

We look forward to working with you and having another successful year of HLS Updates!

Best,

Jamie Gelfman, Esq. 
Editor-in-Chief
