Jennifer L. Herbst, assistant professor at the School of Law and the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, has been selected to participate in Georgia State University College of Law and its Center for Law, Health & Society’s Future of Public Health Law Education: Faculty Fellowship Program. The program is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to foster innovation and build a learning community among those who teach public health law at professional and graduate schools.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this new initiative,” said Herbst, who was one of 10 faculty fellows selected from across the country. “It’s a tremendous opportunity for me to tap into the collective wisdom of public health law educators across the country and bring best practices in interdisciplinary education back to Quinnipiac.”
The fellows will develop interdisciplinary courses and programs in public health at their respective universities during the fellowship year. Their projects will strengthen interdisciplinary education in public health law and promote collaboration with public health agencies and organizations in the fellows’ communities.
