The Law & Global Health Collaboration delved back into transgender rights, law and global health, and more, in the 2017-2018 year.
Continuing to support work connected to the transgender series we ran last year, the seminar series fostered evidence-based dialogue and research on the implications of the Trump administration’s policies on select law and health topics. From the local to the global, and from climate change to immigrant health, the talks helped us to set a research agenda relevant to students and faculty from across USC.
The USC Law & Global Health Collaboration advances scholarship and provides monthly lectures and public discussions at the intersection of law and global health. Virtually all significant global health topics raise challenging issues for the law, which are better understood and addressed when considered from an multidisciplinary basis. The collaboration invites interested students, faculty and staff to partake in a free exchange of ideas and collaboration on these important topics.
Supported by the USC Research Collaboration Fund, Professor Sofia Gruskin, director of the Program on Global Health & Human Rights, leads this collaboration alongside USC Gould Professor of Law and Medicine Alexander Capron and USC Research Professor and Associate Dean of Research Charles Kaplan from the School of Social Work.
