DawnMarie Schulz, an Associate in Curtin & Heefner LLP’s Employment & Labor Law and Environmental & Public Sector Law groups, presented a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) course titled, “Health Information (HIPAA) Privacy & Security Compliance Basics” on June 18, 2014. The CLE was part of the Bucks County Bar Association’s Mini-Marathon CLE Day, held at the Middletown Township Building in Langhorne, PA.

Ms. Schulz’s CLE program provided a foundational background of HIPAA and the recent changes to HIPAA as a result of HITECH. The course also addressed why it is important for attorneys to understand whether HIPAA applies to their clients (or their own legal practices) and what is required for compliance with HIPAA and HITECH.
