Tribal, state, and federal laws create avenues for the collection of health data that can be used for public health surveillance. However, jurisdictional issues can limit access to this data. CDC’s Public Health Law Program (PHLP) and the Network for Public Health Law are co-hosting a webinar on Thursday, November 5, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm (EST) to address this limitation. The webinar will provide background on American Indian and Alaska Native public health data and surveillance issues and discuss the role of law in the access to this data.
