Compliance Lawyer track added to the 18th Annual HCCA Compliance Institute

March 30-April 2, 2014, San Diego, California

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Health care lawyers who have experience with compliance programs and the compliance officer role are better equipped to guide and inform their clients. For this reason, the Health Care Compliance Association's (HCCA) 18th Annual Compliance Institute is offering the Compliance Lawyer track. It will be led by 30 experienced and knowledgeable lawyers from inside and outside the government

"Many people who have no experience in the function of a compliance program or the role of a compliance officer are advising in-house and outside counsel about the compliance function.
