Public Health and the Law


The Bioterrorism Training and Emergency Preparedness Curriculum was developed to educate students and the public on information regarding bioterrorism preparedness and emergency response. 

The Government has special responsibility to ensure health of people. Public health is a common denominator in federal, state, local, international and tribal law.  This module will review the sources for public health law such as; Federal and State Constitutions, Statutes and Regulations.  Jurisdictional differences between State law and Federal law with regard to bioterrorism will be discussed.  The role of Federal agencies (FBI and FEMA), and the military in public health emergencies will also be addressed.
