Join us for the 2016 Annual Health Law Symposium, which
will feature keynote speaker Michael J. Daugherty, author of the book, “The
Devil Inside the Beltway: The Shocking Exposé of the U.S. Government's
Surveillance and Overreach into Cybersecurity, Medicine and Small Business.”
Daugherty, who is founder, president and CEO of the Atlanta-based cancer
detection laboratory LabMD, will discuss his battle with the Federal Trade
Commission (FTC) over data security practices. With his insider’s view of an FTC
investigation, Daugherty has testified before the House of Representatives House
Oversight Committee and regularly keynotes in front of health care, law,
business and technology audiences, educating them on what to expect when the
federal government initiates an investigation.
After his keynote discussion, Michael Daugherty will be
available to sign copies of his book, “Devil Inside the Beltway.” Please note
that only a limited number of books will be available on site to purchase (cash
only); however, you can order your copy of his book ahead of time here.
