I am an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Missouri--Kansas City. After seventeen years as a student of California's health care system, I am intrigued to be reaching to Missouri for my examples. The past several months, in preparation for my move to UMKC and teaching Health Law there, has been a crash course in health law and health care -- Missouri style. I started this blog to share what I learned and to intitiate a broader conversation about what it will take for the Affordable Care Act to work in Missouri.
I am a graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Law School who has spent much of the past twenty five years as a health law attorney and ten of those years working on health care related matters for the office of the California Attorney General.
I have taught Health Law, Elder Law, Disability Law, Health Law Policy, and Health Care Finance at Pacific McGeorge School of Law, Berkeley Law School/Boalt Hall, and the University of California - Hastings College of the Law.
