Jessica M. Carroll, Counsel in the firm’s Employment Law, Healthcare and Litigation Departments, will be a panelist for a live webinar on “The Evolving Landscape of Patient Privacy: Post-Dobbs & Beyond,” which will be hosted by the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) on Wednesday, February 22, 2023, from 11:00am – 12:00pm.
The program will examine the federal and state response to and guidance on patient privacy following the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. The panel will also examine the impact on other federal regulations, including the Information Blocking Rule, on reproductive healthcare information.

Her experience encompasses issues related to medical staffing privileging and peer review matters, restrictive covenant claims, insurance defense and coverage disputes involving general liability claims, and matters related to professional liability, product liability, negligent security and wrongful death claims. She has authored numerous articles for the firm’s Healthcare Perspectives blog addressing legal and ethical issues related to the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs overturning Roe v. Wade.
