Missouri abortion laws have changed significantly throughout the past few years. This can leave hospitals and hospital-owned clinics confused regarding the legal provision of care in the state, especially with a pending lawsuit challenging portions of the state’s new abortion law. This live webinar is being offered in follow-up to the prerecorded webinar on current abortion laws in Missouri to provide members an opportunity to ask questions about the current state of the law. The presentation slides may be referenced during Q&A.


Jane Drummond
General Counsel and Vice President of Legal Affairs
Missouri Hospital Association
Jefferson City

Jane Drummond joined MHA in 2014 as the general counsel and vice president of legal affairs. Drummond provides a full range of legal support to MHA, its related organizations and boards. Her duties include health care compliance, corporate advice and judicial advocacy. Drummond also serves as liaison to a variety of legal professional groups involved in health care law and policy.

Drummond graduated from the University of Missouri School of Law in 2001. Since then, she has largely worked in the public policy arena, while gaining additional experience in private practice. She began her legal career as a health and employment law associate at Husch and Eppenberger (now Husch Blackwell). Based on her health law experience, she was appointed to the position of general counsel for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services under Gov. Matt Blunt. Drummond later served in that same capacity in the governor’s office. In 2007, Gov. Blunt appointed her to serve as the director of DHSS, a cabinet-level position, which she held through the end of the Blunt administration.

Drummond reentered private practice in 2009, joining the Jefferson City firm of Schreimann, Rackers, Francka & Blunt. While there, she focused on employment-related services and litigation, largely for public entities.
