The Petrie-Flom Center celebrated its first decade and kicked off the next by looking at the future of health law and policy!  

The Center brought together Petrie-Flom and other prominent Harvard Law School alumni to discuss major trends, developments, and open questions in the fields of health law policy, biotechnology, and bioethics. We heard about the founder’s vision for the Center and the Dean’s perspective on the Center’s influence within the Harvard Law School community and beyond. Center Leadership discussed what we have accomplished in the first ten years, and more important, our plans for the future. Alan Weil JD '89, Editor-in-Chief of Health Affairs, delivered the keynote address.
