Title: Legal Epidemiology and the Path to Better Health Law and Policy
When: Thursday 21st January 2021, 13:00-14:30 GMT (London) / 14:00-15:30 CET (Brussels) / 8:00-9:30 EST (New York)
Description: The purpose of this webinar is to introduce a global audience to the emerging approach of “legal epidemiology,” the scientific study and deployment of law and legal practices for public health. Legal Epidemiology is an increasingly important part of public health training and practice in the US, and is gradually attracting interest elsewhere. This webinar will cover its origins, nature and rationale, and examples of its use in research, policy tracking, and advocacy. It will conclude with a presentation on how the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has integrated legal epidemiology in its work.
