We welcome University of Missouri-Columbia law professor Sam Halabi, who brings a wealth of academic and practical experience to the podcast. He is interested in corporate governance and regulation at both national and international levels. He has edited (with Lawrence O. Gostin and Jeffrey S. Crowley) Global Management of Infectious Disease after Ebola (Oxford University Press, 2017) and his book, Intellectual Property and the New International Economic Order: Knowledge, Exploitation, and Resistance is scheduled for publication by Cambridge University Press in 2018.

We discussed Sam’s article Selling Hospice (among others). Listeners may also be interested in a WaPo series on hospice care. The lightning round focused on past guest Allison Hoffman’s recent post on the seismic shift in the health policy landscape, the 21st Century Cures Act, new SAMHSA rules, and an OCR resolution agreement.
