Health, Equity, and Law after Dobbs

The Health Law and Policy Program at American University Washington College of Law, in partnership with American University Center on Health, Risk & Society, The George Washington University Law School, The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health, and the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics (ASLME), is pleased to present “Health, Equity, and Law after Dobbs.”  This interdisciplinary conference will bring together experts to examine the legal, medical, public health, and sociological aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. By assembling an interdisciplinary group of researchers, practitioners, and advocates, the conference will provide a fuller picture of both the impact of the law on the books and the realities of the law on the ground. The goal of the conference is to help scholars, practitioners, advocates, and students understand current policy and practice related to abortion, as well as the reverberating effects of the Dobbs decision on the delivery of health care and society more broadly. It also aims to develop a research agenda and a broader strategic focus for advancing more equitable access to reproductive health care in the long term.

This conference will be held in-person in Washington, D.C. and available virtually.

As our partner for this event, ASLME has generously offered to provide complimentary one-year membership to all registrants of this conference.
