Dionne Lomax, a Member of the Antitrust Section of Mintz, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., will present an American Bar Association Webinar (ABA) entitled, “Health Care Antitrust Fundamentals.” The webinar is taking place on Thursday, March 19.
Ms. Lomax and her co-speaker, Steve Vieux, an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission, Bureau of Competition, will explain the principles of health care antitrust fundamentals using examples of recent government initiatives and private antitrust actions. Ms. Lomax and Mr. Vieux will discuss price fixing and why it remains the top health care enforcement concern; why “integration” is a magic word in antitrust; and the law as written and as currently applied to healthcare mergers and acquisitions. The discussion will be moderated by Christi Braun, Deputy General Counsel for Health Affairs, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL.
