Update from JLME

Every June marks the beginning of a busy summer season at ASLME. Last week ASLME hosted the 34th Annual Health Law Professors Conference at Loyola University School of Law. Discussing emerging topics in health law, this conference brings together dozens of professors who are also authors of JLME articles. Take, for example, Thaddeus Pope, who co-guest edited our summer issue, “Cost and End-of-Life Care”; James Hodge, who guest edited our recent supplement issue, on “Using Law, Policy, and Research to Improve the Public’s Health”; or Elizabeth Weeks Leonard, who is guest editing the fall issue of JLME, entitled “Public Health Reform.”

Among the several topics that Leonard and her colleagues discuss in this symposium are various aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, including the constitutionality of the “individual mandate" and its implication for health law. Other articles address incentive-based programs to get physicians to practice in access-impaired populations, as well as the ethical and legal implications of financial incentives at the work place to improve employees’ health.

Stay tuned for more details about this timely fall issue. In the meantime, have you submitted a photo of JLME for our popular contest, “Where in the World is JLME?” Be sure to send your name and location of the photo to margo@aslme.org.
