    Global Emergency Legal Responses to the 2014 Ebola Outbreak: Public Health and the Law.James G. Hodge, Leila Barraza, Gregory Measer & Asha Agrawal - 2014 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 42 (4):595-601.
    From their relative obscurity over the past three decades, varied strains of Ebola disease have emerged as a substantial global biothreat. The current outbreak of Ebola, beginning in March 2014 in Guinea, is projected to infect tens of thousands of people before being brought under control. Some estimate the outbreak could exceed 100,000 cases and extend another 12-18 months. Ebola’s spread has the potential to extend across the globe, but is concentrated in several African countries. Collectively, these countries are home (...)

Hammer, Jill Krueger, Kerri McGowan Lowrey & Daniel G. Orenstein - 2013 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 41 (3):737-745.
    Public health law research reveals significant complexities underlying the use of law as an effective tool to improve health outcomes across populations. The challenges of applying public health law in practice are no easier. Attorneys, public health officials, and diverse partners in the public and private sectors collaborate on the front lines to forge pathways to advance population health through law. Meeting this objective amidst competing interests requires strong practice skills to shift through sensitive and sometimes urgent calls for action (...)

    A New Approach for Regulating Bisphenol A for the Protection of the Public's Health.Leila Barraza - 2013 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 41 (s1):9-12.
    BPA Production and Associated Health Risks Bisphenol A is a chemical agent found in many everyday products, including canned goods and plastic food containers. BPA exposure is linked to a variety of adverse health effects, such as obesity and diabetes. To protect the public's health — especially the health of vulnerable fetuses, infants, children, and pregnant women — BPA regulations should encompass products intended specifically for these populations. Even with tremendous public outcry against the use of BPA, current federal restrictions (...)

    Laws and policies are vital tools in preventing outbreaks and limiting the further spread of disease, but they can vary in content and implementation. This manuscript provides insight into challenges in responding to recent vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks by examining legislative changes in California, policy changes on certain university campuses, and the laws implicated in a measles outbreak in Minnesota.

    Legal Challenges to the International Deployment of Government Public Health and Medical Personnel During Public Health Emergencies: Impact on National and Global Health Security.Brent Davidson, Susan Sherman, Leila Barraza & Maria Julia Marinissen - 2015 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 43 (S1):103-106.
    In an increasingly interconnected global community, severe disasters or disease outbreaks in one country or region may rapidly impact global health security. As seen during the responses to the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa, local response capacities can be rapidly overwhelmed and international assistance may be necessary to support the affected region to respond and recover and to protect other countries from the spread of disease. For example, (...)

    A Proposed Ban on the Sale to and Possession of Caloric Sweetened Beverages by Minors in Public: Public Health and the Law.James G. Hodge, Leila Barraza, Susan Russo, Kellie Nelson & Greg Measer - 2014 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 42 (1):110-114.
    Obesity is the definitive epidemic of the modern era in the United States. Its well-documented public health impacts, especially related to children and adolescents, are horrific. Nearly one-third of American minors are overweight; over 50% of them are obese. Already, these kids suffer from multiple adverse physical and mental health conditions. Sadly, absent serious communal and individual interventions, their lives may be cut short compared to their own parents’ life expectancy. While recent surveillance suggests childhood obesity may be trending down (...)

Griest, Colleen Healy, Jill Krueger, Kerri McGowan Lowrey & William Tilburg - 2015 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 43 (4):904-912.
    Since its inception in 2010, the Network for Public Health Law has aligned with federal, state, tribal, and local public health practitioners to assess how law can promote and protect the public’s health. In 2013, Network authors illustrated major trends in public health laws and policies emanating from an internal assessment of thousands of requests for technical assistance nationally. More recently, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has invited the Network and other partners to consider new ideas and strategies toward building (...)
