About Us

The Mid-States Regional Center of the Public Health Law Network (Network) is located at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. The Network is an initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to promote and support the use of law to solve public health problems. The Network assists public health officials, practitioners, attorneys, policymakers, and advocates to efficiently and effectively use law to protect and promote the public’s health by:

  • Providing direct technical assistance;
  • Developing and providing training, materials, and practical tools; and
  • Connecting individuals with one other to help build a public health law community and support networking and peer assistance.

The Network delivers services and products through a national coordinating center and five regional centers that serve a geographic region and also provide national leadership to the Network for identified specialty areas of law. The Mid-States Regional Center serves nine states: Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. It provides leadership on “health information data sharing” and “public health statutes and regulatory information.”
