PHILADELPHIA—For the second consecutive year, Womble Carlyle attorneys Tony Brett and Gregg Skall will be among the speakers at the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) Conference on Nov. 5th.
Brett and Skall will take part in a panel discussion on “Legal Safe Proofing Your Medical Practice.” The discussion will examine hot spots for state medical boards and the compliance process.
Skall also will participate in a panel discussion titled “The Legislative Process: What's Going On in Congress and State Legislation, and How to be Effective.” With the election less than a month away and talk of a "lame duck" session in the U.S. Congress, this could be the most important legislative session for tick-borne diseases and the doctors who treat them in years. So what do LLMDs and Lyme patients need to know about the legislative process and how to be effective advocates? Skall will join a discussion of federal and state legislative proposals, where things are and what physicians need to do.
Tony Brett has more than 30 years of experience representing numerous hospitals and other health service providers throughout North Carolina in regulatory compliance, business planning needs and administrative issues. He also represents health care providers in litigation arising from a variety of issues including governmental program reimbursement, compliance investigations, medical staff corrective action, and regulatory requirements. Brett practices in Womble Carlyle’s Winston-Salem, N.C. office.
