Experts in Supreme Court Litigation, Dept. Health & Human Services, and Silicon Valley Join NHeLP Board

Ian H. Gershengorn, Rod J. Howard, and William B. Schultz Bring Wealth of Experience to NHeLP Board

Washington – As the National Health Law Program (NHeLP) continues to defend Medicaid and progressive health care law from an antagonistic Congress and administration, the organization, which turns fifty next year, is delighted to welcome three talented members to the NHeLP Board.

“The threats to our health care safety net cannot be overstated,” said NHeLP’s Executive Director Elizabeth G. Taylor. “But NHeLP is ready to fight for the health rights of low-income people and we know that the experience and wisdom of our newest board members will help guide and amplify our work. We are honored to have them join this historic organization and lend their invaluable insights and expertise.” 

Joining the board in 2018 are Ian H. Gershengorn, former Acting Solicitor General of the United States and chair of Jenner & Block’s Appellate and Supreme Court Practice, Rod J. Howard, a leading adviser on mergers and acquisitions in the technology sector and the founder of CapKey Advisors, and William B. Schultz, former General Counsel of the Department of Health and Human Services and now a partner at Zuckerman Spaeder.

“These three individuals bring a range of knowledge that is well matched to the needs of NHeLP, both short-term and in the future. Deep understanding of HHS, the Supreme Court, and the evolving landscape in Silicon Valley will be vital as NHeLP sets out on our next fifty years.”
