Annual Health Directors' Legal Conference

This course is co-sponsored by NC Association of Local Health Directors.

This conference, geared toward directors of local health departments and consolidated human services agencies and the attorneys who work with them, focuses on current legal issues confronting local health departments, including significant changes and developments in state and federal law affecting both personal and environmental health programs. Participants at previous conferences learned about smoking regulation, legal issues in communicable disease control, animal control, issues with local health department medical records, and selected issues in environmental health.

Local Government Federal Credit Union offers scholarships to local government employees to apply toward tuition for conferences, classes, and seminars offered by the School of Government. There are four deadlines to submit applications:

  • June 1 (for courses starting between July 1 and September 30)
