Joanne Lax Named Fellow at Health Care Law Section, State Bar of Michigan

Recognition Acknowledges “Sustained, Outstanding Contributions”; Identifies Lax as “One of Top Health Care Attorneys” in State

August 21, 2013

Joanne R. Lax, Bloomfield Hills-based member in Dykema’s Health Care practice, has been named a Fellow of the State Bar of Michigan Health Care Law Section. Lax will be formally inducted as a Fellow at the Health Care Law Section annual meeting on September 4, 2013, at the Detroit Athletic Club.

The Health Care Law Section created its Fellows Program in 2011, to honor those few individuals who have made sustained, outstanding contributions to the Section and who are generally regarded as the top health care attorneys in Michigan.

With this announcement, Lax becomes the third member of Dykema’s Health Care team to be named a Fellow by the State Bar Health Care Law Section. She joins Maria B. Abrahamsen and Kathrin E. Kudner, who were named Fellows in 2011 and 2012, respectively.  In addition, two retired members of Dykema’s health law team, J. Kay Felt and Bettye S. Elkins, were also named as Fellows in 2012.

Given the very small number of individuals upon whom this honor is bestowed annually, Dykema is very proud that so many of its members have been named to this exclusive group.
