Attorneys Lynn Böes and Jo Ellen Whitney, both practicing in the health law department of the business division, were selected to serve on the newly formed Drake University Law School Health Law Advisory Board.
The advisory board is comprised of 18 professionals active in the healthcare and health law fields. The board is designed to advise on the curriculum and structure of Drake law school programs in health law, including the new Masters of Jurisprudence in health law. The program is designed for healthcare professionals who want to know more about how the law works and impacts their job duties, but are not interested in becoming lawyers. The classes in the program have also been a great opportunity for law students to learn from the healthcare professionals.
