Volunteer Speaker Service
The KBA Health Care Law Section has created a speaker service to provide a mechanism for eligible organizations to obtain speakers knowledgeable in health law subjects to provide presentations at meetings, classes, and related events in order to be of better service to the Commonwealth. The service is available to civic clubs, schools and educational organizations, churches, not-for-profit organizations, and corporate training programs. Individuals are not eligible to use this service.
The panel of volunteer speakers is listed below, along with their contact information and the list of topics they are willing to present. If your organization is interested in inviting a speaker to an upcoming event, you will need to contact one of the panel members directly for scheduling purposes.
If you have questions regarding this service, please contact Health Care Law Section Chair Harry Dadds at email@example.com or (502) 316-3382.
