Morehouse School of Medicine General Counsel and Corporate Secretary
ATLANTA – JUNE 9, 2022 – Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) General Counsel and Corporate Secretary Michael A. Rambert, MCP, JD, will give a presentation at the annual meeting of the American Health Law Association (AHLA) June 27-29, 2022 in Chicago, Illinois. His presentation, "Achieving Your Organization's Goals and Mission Through Strategic Clinical and Corporate Governance," highlights Morehouse School of Medicine’s leadership in the creation and advancement of health equity.
"Too often as in-house legal counsel, we are so busy putting out fires and trying to meet the daily needs of our internal constituents that we do not take the time to develop corporate governance strategies to achieve our organization’s short- and long-term goals and its mission," Attorney Rambert explained. "This presentation will focus on how strategic corporate governance can improve and the overall performance of an organization and reduce risk."
Attorney Rambert also serves as general counsel and corporate secretary at Morehouse Healthcare (MHC), the nation's leader in health equity research and African American genetic studies. While at MSM/MHC Michael has collaborated and negotiated partnerships with Microsoft, Google, Uber, Novartis, CommonSpirit Health, as well as several other major partnerships.
"Health equity means giving people what they need, when they need it, in the amount that they need in order to reach their optimal level of health," said Morehouse School of Medicine President and CEO Valerie Montgomery Rice, MD, FACOG. "Achieving health equity for individuals and communities around the world requires innovation, collaboration, and investment by a wide spectrum of stakeholders. Morehouse School of Medicine and Morehouse Healthcare are fortunate to have Michael Rambert's wise counsel and experienced stewardship as we expand our clinical, education, and research enterprises."
Attorney Rambert has published several articles and has been a featured speaker at numerous conferences and seminars, presenting on the topics of "Board of Trustees’ Fiduciary Duties, Conflicts of Interest and Confidentiality;" "Drafting Joint Venture Agreements; "Due Diligence in Corporate Transactions," "Public-Private Partnership Agreements;" "What Health Care Attorneys Needs to Know About Real Estate Transactions;" and "Real Estate Development Permits and Approvals."
Prior to joining MSM/MHC, Attorney Rambert provided business, legal and corporate governance counsel to several organizations, including the Rutgers University Foundation, Camden County Health Services Center, the Rutgers, Camden Board of Directors and the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences division at Rutgers University, which is one of America’s largest and most comprehensive university-based health education systems, consisting of eight schools, including two medical schools, two faculty clinical practice plans, two nursing schools, a dental school, a school of health professions, a pharmacy school, and a school of graduate studies.
