The O’Neill Institute would like to congratulate the Georgetown Law Journal on their successful symposium, “Law and the Nation’s Health.” On Tuesday, October 15th, the Georgetown Law Journal brought together legal scholars and experts from across the country to discuss the current status of health law in the U.S. and around the globe. Published in June of 2020, the most recent issue of the Georgetown Law Journal is made up of articles written by leading scholars of national and global health law.
Hosted at Georgetown University Law Center, leading experts in health law covered topics including the Affordable Care Act, women’s health, equity and the law, and developments in global health law, presenting original research on surprise medical bills, law and new health technologies, global progress against child mortality, consent and the role of artificial intelligence in health care, among others.
The symposium also celebrated the lifetime achievements of O’Neill Institute Faculty Director and University Professor Lawrence O. Gostin. Before his keynote address underscoring the importance of accomplishing global health with justice, Professor Gostin was introduced by longtime friend and colleague, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
