Public Health Law Competencies

Working together with the CDC’s Office of Workforce Development and other Centers for Public Health Preparedness, as well as national collaborative partners, the Center has developed a statement of “Core Legal Competencies for Public Health Practitioners.”

Under the direction of Professor Stephen P. Teret, Director, the Center engaged a multi-step process to develop these core legal competencies as well as corresponding curricula. A Short Course in Public Health Law: Legal Bases for Public Health Preparedness to Terrorism was also prepared by Center colleauges based on these core legal competencies.
