League of Women Voters of Wellesley presents ‘Constitutional Contagion: How the Supreme Court is Making Us Unhealthy’
November 7, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Free online presentation & discussion with Wendy E. Parmet, Northeastern University School of Law.
From the League of Women Voters of Wellesley:
The US Supreme Court is shaping the future of American life: the way we respond to future public health emergencies; how much control we have over our bodies; who has access to what medical care; what ability we have to regulate environmental impacts; and, what restrictions can be placed on voter participation. Professor Parmet is a leading expert on health, disability, and public health law. She will share her professional perspective on how the decisions of the Supreme Court, those already made or potential actions on cases to be heard, are compromising the health of Americans. Join us for an in depth discussion of today’s Supreme Court.
Wendy E. Parmet is Matthews University Distinguished Professor of Law and Professor of Public Policy & Urban Affairs at Northeastern University, where she is faculty co-director of the Center for Health Policy and Law. She is the author of over 100 law review and medical journal articles and several books including Populations, Public Health & the Law(2009), The Health of Newcomers: Immigration, Health Policy & the Case for Global Solidarity (2017), and the forthcoming Constitutional Contagion: COVID, The Courts and Public Health. She was the Reporter for the Uniform Law Commission’s Study Committee on Public Health Emergencies and is the Associate for Law and Ethics for the American Journal of Public Health.
