Paralegal Named to State Board of Medical Practice

Congratulations to paralegal Debbie J. Boe, who has been appointed by Minnesota’s governor to a four-year term as a public member of the state Board of Medical Practice (BMP).

Boe has a bachelor’s degree from Mankato State University, where she double-majored in paralegal studies and law enforcement, and over 25 years of paralegal experience. She is employed by Gislason & Hunter LLP in its Minneapolis office. She also owns Debbie’s Legal and Genealogical Services.

According to an excellent article, “A Guide to Disciplinary Proceedings before the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice,” by Gregory Merz, J.D. for Minnesota Medicine, the BMP has 16 members, including 10 medical doctors and 5 non-physician public members and is “complaint-driven, meaning that the board undertakes enforcement activity in response to a complaint of specific misconduct…The BMP is required to investigate all timely complaints alleging a violation of the Medical Practice Act.”

Boe’s service on the BMP is both a great honor and a public service. With her extensive legal and investigative background, I have no doubt that she will be a valued addition to the board.
