Law is a traditional public health tool for disease prevention and health promotion. For many traditional public health problems, both acute and chronic, the role of law has been crucial in attaining public health goals, even rivaling the roles of epidemiology and laboratory science. Many of the greatest successes claimed by public health, such as high childhood immunization rates, improved motor vehicle safety, safer workplaces, and reduced tooth decay, have relied heavily on law. In the past few years, law has shaped public health advances in the control of emerging health problems such as SARS and the threat of pandemic influenza.

Our annual conference focuses on innovative legal tools and strategies for public health and explores cutting-edge issues at the crossroads of public health and the law. Please join us in June.
