Tuesday, November 18, 2014: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Contemporary innovations in public health law education offer strong opportunities for collaboration between universities, public health organizations and agencies, and health care providers. This session will present the on-going work of faculty members and others who are engaged in creating and studying these educational innovations. Several of the panelists are Faculty Fellows in the Faculty Fellowship Program in Public Health Law Education, which is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and is designed to foster curriculum innovations and build a learning community among those who teach public health law at law schools and schools of public health. Panelists will discuss new courses and programs that they are developing and that will strengthen interdisciplinary education in public health law while also addressing real-world public health concerns through interdisciplinary and community collaborations. Recent research on the goals, barriers, and facilitating factors to providing medical-legal partnership education will also be presented.
