Sarah Davis

Professor Sarah Davis has been named one of ten faculty fellows to participate in the Future of Public Health Law Education program, led by Georgia State University College of Law and its Center for Law Health and Society. Davis is a clinical assistant professor at University of Wisconsin Law School and the associate director of the Center for Patient Partnerships.

The fellowship program is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to promote innovations in public health law education and build a supportive community of practice in the field. Selected from across the country, fellows will develop interdisciplinary courses and programs in public health law at their respective universities during their fellowship year.

For her project, Davis will create an online community learning space through UW-Madison to complement students’ public health law externships at local and remote locations.

“The UW’s dual degree in law and public health is a great opportunity for students interested in public health law,” said Davis. “I am delighted that this fellowship will position the Law School and our Masters of Public Health Program partner to offer externships to students both near and far from Madison, all the while fostering a rich learning community.”

The program kicks off with an intensive ten-day institute in Park City, Utah, this summer.
