Public Health Management and the Law

Registration for this program is closed.

What does law have to do with public health?  Everything!  It is difficult to overstate the extent to which law affects our everyday work in the field of public health.  The law touches every aspect of health care and public health programs, whether it is a federal and/or state law or regulation, or an obligation which has been agreed to in a contract and that requires performance.  This program consists of 5 workshops. Each workshop will explore basic concepts of law that apply to and are encountered in different areas of health care and public health positions.  The discussion will be practice-oriented to help attendees gain an understanding of how to work with the law in their public health positions.
