September 18: Webcast - Public Health Emergency Law: Protecting Property and Supplies

This webinar provides an opportunity for public health lawyers, health practitioners and other stakeholders to learn about the role of law in protecting property and supplies in a public health emergency. The webinar features an overview of the CDC developed Public Health Emergency Law Competency Model, with a focus on Domain #2: The Protection of Property and Supplies. Attendees will receive an overview of the legal issues health department personnel and their attorneys may face regarding the protection of property and supplies during a public health emergency, including commandeering or closing facilities, limiting price gouging, procuring and reallocating supplies, and authorizing emergency countermeasures. Remarks offered by speakers from the New York State Department of Health will focus on their real-life experiences addressing legal issues surrounding property and supplies in response to the 2009/2010 H1N1 Flu Pandemic and Hurricane Sandy in 2013. Time will be provided for participants to ask questions of our speakers.
