Law and policy impact almost every public health challenge, and are essential tools for protecting and promoting the health of the public. This webinar will preview two important pre-conference workshops designed to empower public health professionals in understanding and analyzing the connection between law and health outcomes. The presenters will discuss the tools and resources their workshops will provide to assist in building the capacity of public health professionals to understand and use law as a public health tool. The 2018 Public Health Law Conference features five workshops and more than 40 sessions on critical issues impacting public health.
