    June 21, 2017 – When it comes to determining the future of health care, employment, and the areas where they intersect, all of the predictions and opinions being tossed around can seem confusing and even conflicting.

    Tommy G. Thompson, the former Health and Human Services secretary and four-term governor of Wisconsin, will give his unique experience and perspective to help bring health care and employment issues into focus for attorneys at the this year’s Health, Labor, and Employment Law Institute, Aug. 17-18, at Glacier Canyon Lodge at the Wilderness in Wisconsin Dells.
