2021 Annual Health Law Conference
HEALTH AND THE BODY POLITIC: UNDERMINING DEMOCRACY, UNDERMINING HEALTH
Health law scholars have been energetically engaged in identifying and responding to the myriad challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Equity, access, mental health, availability of resources, vaccine development and rationing, and related issues of public health and private rights have come to the fore as matters of critical concern. In addition, and related to these issues, is the critical question of democratic governance. Inextricably interrelated to the current public health crisis, the crisis of governance presents a host of issues to be examined. Join us for this dynamic conference featuring leading academics, policy-makers and advocates.
