Washington and Lee School of Law Professor and health care expert Tim Jost is participating in a "New Talk" online discussion forum addressing the question of delivery models for chronic care.
NewTalk presents focused, nonpartisan discussions by experts on some of the most important domestic topics shaping American society today. The site bring together experts in theory, policy and practice—from academics and lawmakers to admired practitioners—to share their diverse perspectives on pressing domestic issues.
NewTalk is organized under the auspices of Common Good, a nonpartisan coalition to restore reliability to America's legal system. Common Good was founded in 2002 by Philip K. Howard, author of The Death of Common Sense (Random House, 1995) and The Collapse of the Common Good (Ballantine, 2002). Howard is Vice-Chairman of the law firm Covington & Burling LLP and a prominent New York civic leader.
Timothy S. Jost holds the Robert L. Willett Family Professorship of Law at the Washington and Lee University School of Law. He is a co-author of the casebook Health Law, used widely throughout the United States in teaching health law, and of a treatise and hornbook by the same name. He is also the author of Health Care Coverage Determinations: An International Comparative Study; Disentitlement? The Threats Facing our Public Health Care Programs and a Rights-Based Response; and Readings in Comparative Health Law and Bioethics. His most recent book is Health Care at Risk: A Critique of the Consumer-Driven Movement from Duke University Press.
