The National Health Law Program 50th Anniversary Celebration

Washington, D.C. Reception

The National Health Law Program’s 50th Anniversary Celebration continued in the nation’s capital, at the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Barbara Jordan Conference Center, on November 12, 2019.  Joined by more than 150 friends and supporters, the National Health Law Program reflected and pondered on the past, present and future of health care in this country.


The NHeLP 50th anniversary celebration will continue with a reception at our annual advocates conference in December in Washington, DC and on January 27th in Los Angeles.
