    About the Discussion
    This discussion will provide a context for health issues for diverse populations in the United States and a suggested approach to addressing such issues.

    Clifford E. Barnes is a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice in the firm's Washington, D.C., and New York offices and serves as Co-Chair of the firm's Health Plan Compliance Group. Barnes has been employed by the firm for over 30 years and represents providers, including hospitals, hospital systems, nursing homes, home health, hospice, ancillary service companies; managed care companies, concentrating in Medicare and Medicaid; and non-profit associations. Barnes is the Co-Founder of Medicaid Health Plans of America, Inc., and currently serves as Vice Chair of the Accountable Care Organization Task Force of the American Health Lawyers Association. In 2016, Barnes was selected to the Washington D.C. Super Lawyers list in the area of Health Care. He was also recommended in The Legal 500 United States (2016), for Health Insurers. He has been a member of NAHSE since 1974.

    The program will be sponsored by the New York Regional Office of the National Association of Health Services Executives, New York State Bar Association Health Law Section, and the Center for Health, Science and Public Policy.

    The National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE) is a non-profit association of Black health care executives founded in 1968 for the purpose of promoting the advancement and development of Black health care leaders, and elevating the quality of health care services rendered to minority and underserved communities. NAHSE's purpose is to ensure greater participation of minority groups in the health field. Its basic objective is to develop and maintain a strong viable national body to more effectively have input in the national health care delivery system. It has provided a vehicle for Blacks to effectively participate in the design, direction and delivery of quality health care to all people.

    The NYSBA Health Law Section provides its members continuing legal education opportunities and a forum to exchange information and perspectives, and address issues relating to health law. The Section and its committees organize continuing legal education programs on health care issues, such as healthcare costs and their effects on access to care and other equally timely topics. The Section makes recommendations on health care law and policy, publishes the Health Law Journal and provides a forum in which health care attorneys meet, exchange ideas, and improve their knowledge and skills.

    The Center for Health, Science & Public Policy offers students the opportunity to study health law in a collaborative environment. Students are exposed to a rich and rigorous curriculum, which provides them with the substantive knowledge and practical skills necessary to become excellent lawyers in fields related to health and science. A strong intellectual and service community, the Center extends its reach beyond the classroom, with externships at leading public and non-profit organizations in the New York metropolitan area. These are organizations whose missions include health care delivery, access to care, public health or broader public policy concerns. Through health law externships, students gain real-world experience, address difficult challenges in law and policy, and make meaningful contributions.
