Right to Try

New law and new rules around experimental treatments for the terminally ill.

Jessica Rothe, MBA, CCEP and Kim Petram, RN, BSN, Healthcare Management Administrators will discuss what Right to Try (RTT) Act that was recently signed into law means for healthcare and healthcare plan members. The answer is equal parts important and complicated. Our speakers will update and unpack every detail of what is arguably one of the hottest topics in healthcare.


Kate Tylee Herz has significant experience conducting workplace investigations and representing clients in federal and state courts against allegations of discrimination, hostile work environment, sexual harassment, wage and commission disputes, wrongful termination, retaliation, and claims under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII, and Washington Law Against Discrimination (WLAD).
