Public Health Law Academy: Train the Trainers

October 3, 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Law and policy impact almost every public health challenge, and are essential tools for protecting and promoting the health of the public. Today’s public health professionals, especially those at the local, state or federal levels, need to have foundational knowledge of our legal system and the role it has played and continues to play in improving overall population health, yet understanding and analyzing the connection between law and health outcomes is one of the primary knowledge gaps among the public health workforce. This Train the Trainer workshop will prepare trainers, public health practitioners, lawyers, and other partners to assist in building the capacity of today’s public health professionals to understand and use law as a public health tool.
