The Health Law Society Sponsors Event for Riley Kids
On Friday, April 13, 2007, the Health Law Society sponsored a Hawaiian party at Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis. Riley is one of Indiana's most premiere health care institutions, ranked among the nation's top 20 children's hospitals by Child Magazine and listed among the nation's top 15 recipients of pediatric research funds by the National Institutes of Health. The Health Law Society, with contributions from the Hall Center for Law and Health, and its directors and staff, funded the party. Children receiving in-patient care, as well as their families, were invited to do a variety of crafts, play games, and eat pizza with students from the Health Law Society, members of the Hall Center for Law and Health's faculty, and a member of the local Indianapolis Bar Association's Health Law Section. The party was a great opportunity for health law students and practitioners to serve the local health care community. Tom Donohoe, HLS secretary, says the group has plans to hold other events with Riley in the coming year. The Health Law Society is a student run organization with a mission to educate law students about the practice of health law, create links between students and local health law attorneys, and serve the community. The Health Law Society is located in the Hall Center for Law and Health at Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis.
