Berman awarded public health fellowship

March 14, 2014 | Faculty

Professor Micah Berman has been awarded a fellowship to participate in the Future of Public Health Law Education: Faculty Fellowship Program.  The program is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to foster innovations and build a learning community among those who teach public health law at professional and graduate schools.

The 10 fellows, chosen from across the country, will develop interdisciplinary courses and programs in public health law at their respective universities during the fellowship year. Their projects will strengthen interdisciplinary education in public health law and promote collaborations with public health agencies and organizations in the fellows’ communities.

The course Berman will develop through the fellowship will engage both law and public health students.  The students will work in collaboration with the Franklin County Public Health Department in reviewing and changing public health laws.
