Abstract

In 2014, I began a year-long fellowship in public health law education during which I met an extraordinary group of public health educators and scholars. We formed close professional bonds during our fellowship year that resulted in later collaborations, informal gatherings, and friendships. Following the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States in 2017, we began talking as a group about how new political priorities would threaten public health. Shortly thereafter, I proposed bringing my former group of fellows back together to address those threats as part of the annual Health Law Symposium at Saint Louis University School of Law, entitled Public Health Law in the Era of Alternative Facts, Isolationism, and the One Percent. Most of our original group was able to participate in a day- long event that featured panel lectures and probing question-and-answer sessions. And now the lectures from that symposium are collected for you here.
