Fuse Brown Selected as Health Law Scholar

ASLME Health Law Scholar Fuse BrownAssistant professor Erin Fuse Brown was named a 2014 Health Law Scholar at the ASLME 2014 Health Law Professors Conference.

As one of four professors selected nationwide, Fuse Brown will participate in a Health Law Scholars Workshop, a joint initiative of Saint Louis University School of Law and ASLME.

“This workshop offers junior faculty members the opportunity to present promising works-in-progress and receive in-depth critique from experienced health law and bioethics scholars,” said professor Sidney Watson with the Center for Health Law Studies at Saint Louis University School of Law, in announcing the scholars. “In addition to encouraging scholarship, the program is designed to cultivate a sense of community among health law academics.”

Fuse Brown’s paper “Rationalizing Hospital Prices” was chosen by a nominating committee of nine highly regarded health law scholars from across the country in a blind review process. The paper is her third in a series examining hospital pricing and discusses various legal and policy solutions offered to ameliorate the problems of irrational hospital prices.

“I am delighted to be selected for this prestigious program,” Fuse Brown said. “This is an invaluable opportunity to receive the feedback of more senior colleagues to further develop my paper and to discuss ideas about future scholarship.”
