These free Public Health Law Academy trainings focus on administrative law — the area of law that governs how public health practitioners carry out common regulatory activities, from developing regulations and drafting guidance documents to implementing and enforcing public health programs. The trainings also explain how practitioners can promote health equity in their day-to-day work on these activities.
The courses will help you answer the following questions:
- What is administrative law, and why is it important for health departments to understand?
- How can health departments better serve communities through equity-centered rulemaking or equitable implementation and enforcement of public health programs?
- How can public health professionals navigate legal barriers and avoid having their regulations challenged in court?
- How can health departments engage community members in regulatory processes?
Each of the courses is designed for individuals working in or with public health departments in all areas of practice and on all types of regulatory activities. Check out Parts 1 and 2 below, and stay tuned for Part 3.
