Featured Webinar

Preemption: Why It’s A Big Deal in Public Health

Date: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018
Time: 
1:30pm

Preemptive policies and preemption-based legal challenges can block state and local advances in tobacco control and public health and derail important initiatives. In this first of a series of Consortium and Public Health Law Center webinars on the impact of preemption on public health and safety, public health experts will provide a general background on preemption and how it has been used to weaken, impede, and defeat tobacco control, healthy eating, active living, and other public health policies.
