American College of Correctional Physicians Spring Educational Conference

On March 24, 2018, Hall Booth Smith, PC, Partner Beth Boone presented at the 2018 American College of Correctional Physicians Spring Educational Conference in Houston, Texas. The AACP is the only membership organization committed solely to the professional development and fellowship for correctional physicians, providing a venue of advocacy for the correctional physicians and their patients. AACP members are united for the goal of improving public health by examining issues specific to the incarcerated and identifying solutions for medical professionals.

Along with Deana Johnson, JD, General Counsel with Centurion-MHM, Inc., Larry Wulkan, JD, Stinson Leonard Street, LLC, Dr. Todd Wilcox, Medical Director of Salt Lake County Jail System in Utah, and Dr. Grant Phillips, Medical Director of Maricopa Correctional County Health Services in Arizona, Ms. Boone and the presenters conducted a mock trial with a focus on understanding the role of the physician defendant and physician expert in correctional malpractice and deliberate indifference litigation.

“The 2018 AACP Spring Conference was a wonderful opportunity to share and collaborate regarding prior experiences and relevant educational matters in relation to testifying in both a deposition and trial setting. The participants and attendees alike appeared to enjoy the lively discussion and interaction, and hopefully everyone found the presentation to be as valuable as I did,” commented HBS Partner Beth Boone.
