Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that Jackson partner Dinetia Newman has been selected to join the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) Fellows Class of 2016. Ms. Newman and her 10 Fellows counterparts will be formally recognized during AHLA’s Annual Meeting being held in Denver in June.
“We are very pleased to see Dinetia earn this distinction based on her dedication and contributions to AHLA over the years,” said Bradley Healthcare practice group chair Jay Hardcastle. “Dinetia’s health law practice serves as an example and inspiration to each of her colleagues. Her work in this realm has truly enriched our field. Congratulations to Dinetia and each member of this year’s Fellows Class.”
AHLA’s Fellows Program was established in 2004 to recognize the organization’s lifelong leaders and to provide a forum that allows former volunteer leaders to remain active in AHLA. Only a small percentage of AHLA’s members are selected for Fellowship. The honor recognizes their achievements, their contributions and tenure with AHLA, and their ongoing service and leadership within the profession. The complete list of 2016 Fellows can be seen here.
Ms. Newman has spent her career representing hospitals and health systems, physicians and ancillary service providers on regulatory, operational and transactional matters, including: Medicare and Medicaid payment, Anti-kickback Act, Stark Law, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act, HIPAA privacy and security compliance, state law licensure and Certificate of Need issues. She is a past president of the AHLA, the Health Law Section of the Mississippi Bar and the Mississippi Chapter of HFMA, and past chair and co-chair of AHLA’s Regulation, Accreditation and Payment practice group. Ms. Newman is a frequent speaker and author, and has taught as an adjunct professor in health law at the University of Mississippi School of Law.
