AHLA addresses the issues facing our members by providing resources to those who practice in law firms, government, in-house settings, and academia, as well as educating the entire spectrum of the health industry: physicians, hospitals and health systems, health maintenance organizations, health insurers, life sciences professionals, managed care companies, nursing facilities, home care providers, and consumers.
