2002 alum wins health fellowship


Sarah Davis

2002 alum Sarah Davis has been selected to participate in the Future of Public Health Law Education: Faculty Fellowship Program. The program is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to foster innovations and build a learning community among those who teach public health law at professional and graduate schools.

Davis is associate director of the Center for Patient Partnerships at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and a clinical associate professor of law in the schools of Law, Medicine and Public Health, Nursing and Pharmacy.

Davis, who holds a dual-degree in law and public policy, will use the fellowship to create an online community learning space to complement students' public health law externships at local and remote locations.

Davis, the other nine fellows, their deans, mentors, distinguished public health practitioners and leading legal education experts will participate in an intensive 10-day summer institute in July in Park City, Utah, to kick off the program.
