Our return guest this week is Wendy Parmet, Matthews Distinguished University Professor of Law, Professor of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Director of the Program on Health Policy and Law, and Associate Dean for Interdisciplinary Education and Research Support at Northeastern University School of Law.  Professor Parmet is a leading voice internationally on cutting edge issues in public health. She also recently won the ASLME’s Jay Healey Health Law Teachers Award.

Our discussion focused on The Health of Newcomers: Immigration, Health Policy, and the Case for Global Solidaritya recent book of Wendy’s (co-authored with philosopher Patricia Illingworth). This is a far-reaching interdisciplinary inquiry, which closely examines the interdependence of natives and newcomers across several health dimensions. Our discussion progresses into an old Pod favorite, “Docs and Glocks,” before ending with some observations on the current state of scientific knowledge regarding opioid interventions.
