For those interested in the connection between law and NCDs, the O'Neill Institute Summer Program may be of interest. I have pasted details below and further information can be found at the linked URL. One point of particular note is that applications for financial assistance close this Friday.
The O'Neill Institute Summer Program on Global Health Law and Governance:
Non-Communicable Diseases and the Law, June 17-21, 2013, Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, DC
REMINDER: Deadline to Apply for Financial Assistance is Friday, March 22, 2013
As global efforts to address non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are accelerating, complexity is increasing and the importance of law is becoming more apparent. Understanding the powers, duties and constraints created by law is now essential not only for lawyers, but also for officials and advocates working on NCDs. The O'Neill Institute Summer Program on NCDs and the Law will take a global approach to the issues, while also drawing upon case studies from domestic law. Participants will enhance their understanding of the global burden of NCDs, contemporary developments at the international level, international instruments governing NCDs, best practice regulation, the intersection of human rights and NCDs and the intersection of trade, investment and NCDs.
