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.

ABOUT THE O'NEILL INSTITUTE
The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at
Georgetown University was established in 2007 through the generous
philanthropy of Linda and Timothy O’Neill to respond to the need for
innovative solutions to the most pressing national and international
health concerns. Housed at Georgetown University Law Center in
Washington D.C., the O’Neill Institute reflects the importance of public
and private law in health policy analysis. The O’Neill Institute draws
upon the University's considerable intellectual resources, including the
School of Nursing & Health Studies, School of Medicine, the Public
Policy Institute, and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics.
