Boles:   (Did not answer)
Glisson:   I’m a nationally-recognized lawyer with a 30+ year career in healthcare law, and most recently served as Kentucky's Secretary for the Cabinet for Health and Family Services. I also served as an adjunct professor of law at the University of Louisville’s Brandeis School of Law, and chaired the Health Law Section of the American Bar Association. Given the healthcare issues still facing our country, my experience in Medicare/Medicaid mediations and in conducting other healthcare-related disputes is particularly relevant. I have published and lectured on a great number of health law topics, particularly on the Affordable Care Act and the privacy and security of health information. I have also delivered countless national and international presentations on health care and have served as a contributing author for resources on health care law and government regulation.
