The Public Health Law Watch initiative identifies potential legislative and regulatory changes that have an impact to harm public health but have yet to break into the mainstream conversation, identifies ways to engage on these issues, and provides legal analysis and commentary.

PHLW hosts comment writing party at Northeastern Law

PHLW hosts comment writing party at Northeastern Law

Last week, Public Health Law Watch hosted a comment writing party at Northeastern Law, with help from the Center for Health Policy and Law and How To Get It Done.

Eighteen students showed up to write comments regarding the USDA’s proposed SNAP rule that will likely take food stamps away from over 700,000 people.

We provided students with fact sheets, comment templates, copies of the proposed rule, and of course, snacks.

After the success of this event, PHLW is considering hosting multi-campus comment writing parties in the future. Contact us if your law school or organization would be interested in participating!
