Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's Ronald E. Chronister, Robert T. Harper and George A. Huber will participate in Penn State University Dickinson School of Law's upcoming forum, "Lifting the Fog on Health Care Reform: Policy and Transactions," taking place Tuesday, November 10, 2009. The program is designed to help participants understand the status of policy reform and to assess its impact on the business community.

Chronister — specialist/insurance industry consultant in Buchanan's Harrisburg office and former deputy insurance commissioner for the Pennsylvania Insurance Department — will participate in the forum's first panel, which will provide an overview of the current proposed legislation and insights into the implications of impending policy shifts.

Harper — co-chair of Buchanan Ingersoll's Health Care Section and a shareholder in the firm's Pittsburgh office — will moderate the second panel, which will explain the likely impact on the structure of the health care industry and transactions, including access to financing and mergers and acquisitions.

The event will begin at 5:15 p.m. in room 118, Lewis Katz Building, University Park and be simulcast to room 148, Advantica Building, Carlisle. The program also will be available via live webcast at www.law.psu.edu/.
