Wendy Mariner on “The Week in Health Law” Podcast

By Nicolas Terry

TWIHL welcomes back Professor Wendy Mariner, Professor of Health Law at Boston University School of Public Health and Professor of Law at Boston University School of Law. Professor Mariner is a prolific scholar whose broad and deep understanding of the U.S. healthcare system is the envy of all her colleagues.

We thought it would be a good idea to reflect on some of the current health law and policy stories with a lightning round. We discussed the latest abortion case to be granted cert., the current state of judicial play in Medicaid work requirements, the new Tennessee block grant proposal, the latest on the opioid litigation, the current state of play on the public charge rule, the latest on the Safehouse safe injection facility litigation in Philadelphia, potential wellness programs on the exchanges, and surprise billing.

The Week in Health Law Podcast from Nicolas Terry is a commuting-length discussion about some of the more thorny issues in health law and policy. Subscribe at Apple Podcasts or Google Play, listen at Stitcher Radio, Spotify, Tunein or Podbean.

Show notes and more are at If you have comments, an idea for a show or a topic to discuss you can find me on Twitter @nicolasterry and @WeekInHealthLaw.
