Georgetown establishes leading institute for global and national health law

Washington, DC -- Georgetown University is pleased to announce the establishment of the Linda and Timothy O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law. The Institute, which was created by a generous $10 million gift from Linda and Timothy O'Neill, is among the first for the study of global and national health law.

"We are deeply grateful to Linda and Tim O'Neill for this transformative gift," said Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia. "Their vision positions Georgetown as a leading home for national and global health law."

The O'Neill Institute, co-founded by the Georgetown University Law Center and the Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS), will create centers on global health, disease prevention and health outcomes, health regulation and governance, and health care financing and organization. Housed at Georgetown Law Center, in the heart of the nation's capital, the Institute will bring together top scholars and fellows in the areas of health and law who will create innovative projects to address health problems that face the international community.

The Institute will also draw upon the University's considerable intellectual resources, including the School of Medicine, the Public Policy Institute, the NHS Center for Health and Education and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics.

"By using law as a tool, the O'Neill Institute will dramatically improve health around the globe," noted Georgetown Law Associate Dean Lawrence O. Gostin, who will serve as the O'Neill Institute's faculty director. "The O'Neill Institute will provide comprehensive solutions to help solve the world's most pressing health problems such as epidemic disease, obesity and threats surrounding bioterrorism."

"It is our intention that the O'Neill Institute will become the leading health law and policy program in the nation and one of the world's most important health law training and research centers," said
