Assistant Professer Chinelo Diké-Minor was a co-presenter on the Health Care Fraud Enforcement Challenges panel at the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics’ 46th Annual Health Law Professors Conference, June 7-9.  

Hosted by the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, conference participants heard from professionals in various areas of law and health care, and discussions included topics from modernizing public health laws to health care workforce issues.

Diké-Minor’s talk was titled “The Devil Made Me Do It: An Argument for Expanding the Anti-Kickback Statute to Cover Private Payers” which stemmed from her recent research on anti-kickback laws: laws that prohibit payments to induce or reward referrals of health care.  Her first article of a two-part series, "The Untold Story of the United States' Anti-Kickback Laws," was published in May in the Rutgers Journal of Law and Public Policy, Vol. 20.
