Educational Philosophy: I hope to create an online learning environment in which you feel connected and engaged, not only as an individual student, but as a class. The assignments and discussions that are presented are designed to encourage you to delve into the "seamless web" of the law and learn how to analyze the law in its application to the health care industry.
