Health Law Section
Volume 25, Number 1,
October 2012

By Marla Durben Hirsch, Editor
Back in 1982, the ABA's Forum Committee on Health Law was not yet a
full-fledged Section, but it had the foresight to realize that its members needed a
publication to address the legal issues that affected the health law community, and
launched The Health Lawyer.
The eight-page newsletter consisted of one article, Corleto: A Paper Tiger? by
Edward Hollowell, Hollowell & Silverstein, Raleigh, NC, analyzing the expan-
sion of the doctrine of corporate negligence to hospitals.
The publication grew in fits and starts, eventually becoming the iconic and
venerable journal you see before you today, and reflecting just how much it, and
health law, has evolved in the past 30 years.
Just to give you some perspective, back in 1982:
* Ronald Reagan was president
* Michael Jackson released Thriller
 The average cost of gasoline was 91 cents a gallon
 Time's 'Man of the Year' was the computer
 Tootsie, E-T and Chariots of Fire were released
 Anne Hathaway, Seth Rogan, Andy Roddick and Prince William were born;
Leonid Brezhnev, John Belushi and Princess Grace died
* The Stark Law and HIPAA didn't exist
 The Department of Health and Human Services, formerly the Department
of Health, Education and Welfare, was only two years old; The Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services was still known as the Health Care Financing
 Most people thought that 'health law' consisted only of medical malpractice work
