11-state regional Public Health Law Network office to be established at ASU College of Law
Date:9/20/2010

The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University has been named a regional office for the national Public Health Law Network, which launches today to provide legal and policy solutions to professionals grappling with complex public health challenges such as food safety, health reform and emergency preparedness.

The College's Public Health Law and Policy Program (PHLPP) received a $1.325 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to establish the Network's Western region center on the ASU Tempe campus. Working with the University of New Mexico School of Law in Albuquerque, the Network is helping public health authorities and partners in 11 states assess and apply the law to pressing public health issues. The states in the Western region are Arizona, Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

"Public health practitioners, lawyers, policy-makers and advocates rely on the law to help build communities that are healthy and safe for their citizens," said ASU President Michael M. Crow. "ASU is proud to be a partner in this crucial national effort to give those to whom the public's health has been entrusted better tools to protect, promote and improve the lives of citizens throughout the West and across the country."

The Network delivers technical assistance and provides education and training to public health officials at the local, state, federal and tribal levels by developing, implementing and enforcing laws to help solve public health problems. Among the topics covered:

  • Cross-border public health
  • Emergency legal preparedness and response
  • Tribal public health
  • Tobacco control
  • Environmental public health
  • Food safety
  • Health reform
  • Health information data sharing
  • Injury prevention and safety
  • Public health agency accreditation and regionalization
