Dear Colleagues,

Faculty at the University of Florida Levin College of Law continue to produce cutting-edge scholarship analyzing the use of law to improve health outcomes, including through the regulation of medical technology, better integration of mental health in criminal law, and ongoing identification of the unique health needs of agricultural workers. Through their research and a generous $20 million gift dedicated to health law, UF Law’s health law program is stronger than ever before. I invite you to learn more below.
