Keynote speaker Daniel E. Dawes, J.D., is a nationally recognized author and thought leader in health care law and policy. He will explore how an individual’s health status can be strongly impacted by political, economic and social factors. This discussion of determinants of health through a political lens will bring a multidisciplinary and inclusive approach to analyzing issues that impact people in urban and rural communities.
