Reviewing and updating public health laws and policies is an essential part of public health. At the local level, this task falls to boards of health, health departments, city and county governments, and their legal counsel. All of the players must understand their role and their legal authority. The presenter will discuss resources and strategies for researching law and policy at the local level, and highlight examples of legal and policy innovations in small- and medium-sized communities, as well as in the nation’s largest cities. 


By attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe the role of a local board of health, health department, city/ county government, and legal counsel with regard to reviewing and updating public health laws.
  • Explain the difference between advisory authority and policy-making authority, and how differing authority might make a resolution, proclamation, or ordinance an appropriate legal tool.
  • List resources for researching local public health laws and policies.
  • Identify examples of legal and policy innovations in the areas of child poverty, healthy eating, active living, tobacco control, environmental health, and mental health in rural, suburban, and urban communities.
