A Message from the Section Chair

Amy Lewis Gilbert

“Welcome to the Health Care & Life Sciences Section of the Indianapolis Bar Association! This section, which has long served attorneys who represent or otherwise engage with health care systems and providers, recently expanded to also address the needs of those who work within the burgeoning Indianapolis life sciences industry. We work hard to provide our members with a compelling array of relevant educational offerings, networking forums and leadership opportunities – and we pride ourselves on being a valuable resource for Indianapolis attorneys seeking to stay on top of these rapidly evolving and complex areas of law.

We invite you to not only attend our events and consider membership in our section, but also to contact us if you are interested in being more involved. Please feel free to email me directly if you have ideas about CLE topics you would like us to broach; have interest in posting a relevant event, award or substantive contribution to our web page; or would like to be considered for future participation on our section’s executive committee.  Here’s to a fabulous year of learning, collaboration and fun with colleagues new and old!”
