Public Health Policy Change Webinars

The Public Health Law Center's series of webinars for the public health community covers significant and timely topics in public health law and policy. Our presenters include experts in areas such as tobacco control, healthy eating, active living and other obesity prevention work, worksite wellness, and general public health policy development. Each webinar provides specific objectives and substantive resources applicable to public health practitioners, lawyers, advocates and community leaders.

The webinars run for 90 minutes and include presentations by at least three leading experts that examine the topic from different angles. The presentation concludes with an interactive Question and Answer session where participants may submit questions directly to panelists.

The Public Health Law Center, home of the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium, partners with many national health organizations, several of which are co-sponsors on our webinars. As leaders in their fields, these organizations provide additional insight and take-away skills on the topic at hand.
