The devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt the lives of nearly all people and businesses, with the healthcare industry at the epicenter of the crisis.

As the healthcare community faces unprecedented challenges in delivering care, DePaul's College of Law, in collaboration with the American Health Law Association and dbase media, have produced a series of public service announcement videos to heighten awareness of the ever-shifting legal landscape in light of the coronavirus. 

“COVID-19: Health Law Disruption" features narratives from AHLA authorities including Wendy Netter Epstein, faculty director of the Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute, current and former Jaharis fellows, and other legal experts from private practice, in house counsel and other industry sectors. In the series, these experts discuss how health law has rapidly changed in response to the pandemic.  

Together, these videos offer a deep dive into pressing topics such as the current and future impact of new waivers; how rural and other providers are facing challenges with limited resources, supplies, staffing and capacity issues; and how long-term care facilities may minimize risk to patients and staff. 

The full PSA mini-series can be found on the Coronavirus Hub on AHLA's website and channels, managed by dBase Media
