Medicine and Law Center plans September ‘Grand Rounds’ at Florida State

The Center for Innovative Collaboration in Medicine and Law at Florida State University will hold a “Grand Rounds” at the College of Medicine at 4 p.m., September 12, in the auditorium of the College of Medicine (Thrasher) Building.

The Grand Rounds speaker will be Philip K. Howard, a partner in the New York office of Covington and Burling, who several years ago founded an organization called Common Good. Common Good’s philosophy of “offering new ideas to restore common sense to all three branches of government” is exemplified in Howard’s best-selling books The Death of Common Sense, The Collapse of the Common Good, and Life Without Lawyers.

One of the main projects of Common Good is promoting the idea of specialized “health courts” to handle claims of medical malpractice. Howard served as an advisor to both Gov. Lawton Chiles and Gov. Jeb Bush on this idea.

Howard’s Grand Rounds presentation is free and open to the public. For further information, contact Kelly Gallavan at the Center for Innovative Collaboration in Medicine and Law at or (850) 645-9451.
