ATLANTA – Four health law students were acknowledged for their achievements at the 2013 College of Law Honors Day. “We are proud of the accomplishments of our health law students,” said Charity Scott, director of the Center for Law, Health & Society. “These dedicated students have worked hard and truly earned this recognition.”

Sarah Ketchie (J.D. ’13) received the annual Health Law Award. This award includes a monetary gift sponsored by the State Bar of Georgia’s Health Law Section. It recognizes outstanding student achievement in health law including academic performance, writing ability, experiential learning, and involvement in the health law community.
