This seminar will provide an opportunity to better understand the legislative and administrative policy processes in California. Using two case studies, participants will learn how a bill becomes a law, how regulations are developed, and the role of an advocate. This seminar is particularly useful for Public Health and Public Policy students who wish to understand the practical application of their degree in promoting health equity.
