Thank you for joining the inaugural Public Health Law Practitioners Convening!!!!

Thanks to all of you who joined our inaugural Public Health Law Practitioners Convening! It was the first practice-focused gathering of its kind. New and experienced practitioners had the opportunity to learn practical public health law and policy skills, and network with colleagues from state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments.

The event was created for both new and experienced practitioners with the goal of expanding the use of law and policy as tools to advance public health. We hope you engaged with colleagues to share ideas and gain new skills to improve the public’s health through law and policy.
