The Insurance Law LL.M. program graduated its first students in 2013:
On May 9th and 10th, Cooley Professors Lisa DeMoss and Monica Navarro, in concert with the Oakland University School of Business Administration, hosted a two day academic forum at the Auburn Hills campus on emerging physician issues. Professor Navarro presented a paper on the basics of Accountable Care Organizations and Professor DeMoss discussed the impact of new health insurance exchanges on physician practices in Michigan. Abstracts of their presentations are scheduled to be published by Springer later this year..
OU Business School Dean Mohan Tanniru was accompanied by Professors DeMoss and Navarro on the first morning of the conference. The forum was well attended by physicians, health care providers, consultants and academics from the United States and Canada.
