Author Biography

Leo Beletsky, Northeastern University School of Law, Boston, MA, USA

Professor Beletsky holds an interdisciplinary appointment with the School of Law and Bouvé College of Health Sciences. His expertise is in the public health impact of laws and their enforcement, with special focus on infectious disease, substance use and addiction, occupational safety of first responders, and policing as a structural determinant of health. His current scholarship examines municipal budgetary priorities; the role of police in COVID-19 response; the compounding of the overdose crisis by the global coronavirus pandemic; and how public health policies shape individual liberties, especially in marginalized communities. Professor Beletsky is a frequent media commentator on public health law and policy, health equity and policing. Those issues define the project portfolio of the School of Law’s Health in Justice Action Lab, which he founded and now directs.
