Additional Public Health Counsel Contacts


The CDC Public Health Law Program provides this voluntary directory of public health attorneys who advise city and county health departments in the United States, and provincial and state health departments in Canada and Mexico. If you are a government-employed attorney serving a city or county (or county equivalent) health department in the United States, a provincial health department in Canada, or a state health department in Mexico and you would like to be listed, please submit the following information to kcartwright@cdc.gov: name, degree(s), title, organization, name of health department served, mailing address, phone, fax, email. Please allow 2 weeks for posting. In order to maintain the currency of the directory, persons who submit listings to this directory should notify CDC at the same email address as soon as possible of any changes in their listing. CDC maintains this directory as a public service.

CDC does not verify the accuracy of listings submitted, and CDC and DHHS assume no responsibility for the accuracy or currency of the listings. CDC’s posting of a listing in this directory does not constitute any opinion or position by CDC or DHHS concerning the credentials or professional standing of the person listed. The contents of this directory are in the public domain. CDC retains the right to delete or alter any listing, or to discontinue this directory.
