The O'Neill Institute Vote Food 2016: Better Food, Better Health

Vote Food 2016: Better Food, Better Health

This Spring, the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at the Georgetown University Law Center will gather leading governmental, academic and civil-society leaders to identify practical, workable solutions to legal and regulatory issues in the United States food system that are causing health issues. While many groups have examined food-related policy, management, and economic questions, this conference will uniquely focus on where the law can improve public health by strengthening the U.S. food system. The purpose of this conference is to generate a clear articulation of the range of legal and regulatory solutions available to whoever is elected in 2016. This conference will provide a resource for 2016 candidates, currently elected officials and their staff, attorneys in executive and legislative branch agencies, policymakers, and other key players working directly on food issues as well as other key political areas that directly impact our food system like agriculture, immigration and trade.
