Keith Lefkowitz

  • Profile

“I’ve always been drawn to health care and even considered medicine as a career. In the end, I pursued the study of political science and sociology because I wanted to make an impact beyond the individual and utilize the law to change society for the better. Health law is the perfect marriage of these two interests and puts me in a perfect position to facilitate the growth of the health care industry and ultimately expand patient access to care.”
— Keith Lefkowitz
