In partnership with CDC’s Public Health Law Program, the National Environmental Health Association will host a three-part webinar series focused on the emerging field of legal epidemiology. Legal epidemiology is the scientific study of law as a factor in the cause, distribution, and prevention of disease and injury.
Laws and policies are essential to environmental health. Local environmental health practitioners, in particular, should be aware of legal epidemiological tools as it's harder for them to look across jurisdictions for best practices due to a lack of current information on law and policy. Using legal epidemiology can help with these barriers. Don’t miss your chance to learn about this exciting intersection of public health law and environmental health!
