This half-day course is a survey of selected legal issues that typically arise during emergencies such as emergency declarations and their implications, isolation and quarantine law, volunteer liability and credentialing. This competency-based training will help attendees to identify potential legal issues so that necessary adjustments to planning, policies, or procedures can be developed prior to a public health emergency, and ensure a more effective response.
This event will be presented and facilitated by Gregory Sunshine, JD. Gregory is a Legal Analyst with Center for Disease Control’s Public Health Law Program. Prior to coming to the CDC, Gregory coordinated bioterrorism preparedness and emergency response for the Baltimore City Health Department.
