Transgender People Interacting with the Legal and Healthcare Industries - Personal and Practical Insights

Event Description

Deadline to Register: Wednesday, September 14, 2016

What is it like for someone who is transgender to practice law?  What challenges do transgender individuals face in accessing the health care system and obtaining coverage for medically necessary services?  Ellen Krug will share personal and practical insight from her life experiences as, first and foremost, a human being, who is also an attorney and a consumer of health care.  Ellen is an accomplished writer and lecturer who practiced law as a trial attorney in Boston and Cedar Rapids, IA, before becoming the first Executive Director of Call for Justice, LLC. 

Phil Duran (Legal Director, OutFront Minnesota) will provide a current health law update of laws, legislation, and case law—both local and nationwide—affecting transgender individuals as patients, health plan members, and employees receiving health benefits. 
Health law and non-health law attorneys alike will benefit from this personal insight and legal update on a landscape that is evolving by the week.  Please join us for this important discussion

Breakfast and registration will start at 7:30 a.m.  The CLE program will start at 8:00 a.m.
