Global WACh Logo

If you are interested in exploring global health law and policy issues from a multidisciplinary perspective, please join us for Legal and Policy Solutions to Improve the Global Health of Women, Children & Adolescents, a lecture series and course that meets Tuesdays from 5:30 – 7 pm Winter Quarter.

Each Tuesday, we invite three expert practitioners –one from medicine/public health/health science, one from law/policy, and one from a community organization/NGO –  to discuss health topics that impact women, children and adolescents in the US and around the world.  We have some amazing speakers lined up so far, ranging from a pediatrician from Kenya who works to prevent mother-child HIV transmission to a Seattle City Councilwoman who has led advocacy for a paid parental leave ordinance.

Feel free to attend any session.  The series is also open to all UW students and the public, so you can attend any session that is of interest without enrolling for course credit.

Enrollment/grading.  You can also enroll to receive one course credit for attending the speaker series (LAW H518 A/B) or two credits for attending both the speaker series and a small discussion group that meets beforehand from 4:20 – 5:20 pm (LAW H518 C/D, meeting in Room 115).  Both sections will be graded on a credit/no credit basis.  Students of the speaker series (LAW H518 A/B) receive credit for attending the lectures – readings are optional.  Students of the discussion group (LAW H518 C/D) receive credit for reading the assigned articles and participating in the discussion.

Course organizers:  Jennifer Lenga-Long, JD; Tanya Karwaki, JD, LLM; Brandi Shah MD, MPH; and Jennifer Slyker, PhD
