Richard Hughes IV, Member of the Firm, speaks at and serves as Co-Chair of the National Vaccine Law Conference 2023, which runs from September 13 to 15.

The first day of the conference consists of a symposium, "Celebrating VFC (Vaccines for Children) at Thirty Years Old and Envisioning Its Future." Moderated by Richard, the program reflects on the time before VFC’s creation and the effort it took to pass and implement the law, followed by a discussion of challenges and opportunities as we think about VFC’s future. Former HHS Secretary Donna Shalala is a keynote speaker for the symposium.

The day will culminate in a reception celebrating Sara Rosenbaum’s many contributions to vaccine law and to honor her with the Vaccine Vanguard Award. Richard organized the tribute and will speak.

Richard will also serve as moderator for "The Evolving Adult Immunization Schedule" and "Current Issues in Coverage and Reimbursement for Vaccines & Vaccine-Like Products," and as a panelist for "The Vaccine Law Year in Review." He will also moderate a pre-conference symposium, "Envisioning Vaccine Access Post-PHE."
