With three Jimmy John's near Michigan State University, how many E. coli O26 cases will there be?

Bill Marler wonders, "In past Jimmy John’s sprout E. coli and Salmonella cases, young people – especially college students – seem to have been disproportionately hit. With at least three Jimmy John’s in East Lansing, and one student sick, I wonder how many of the 2, or 7, will be part of the count."

Public Health Law Research Call for Proposals

Public Health Law Research: Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health

Public Health Law Research (PHLR) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The program seeks to build the evidence for and strengthen the use of regulatory, legal and policy solutions to improve public health. PHLR is equally interested in identifying and ameliorating laws and legal practices that unintentionally harm health. PHLR's purpose is to answer important questions, such as: How does law influence health and health behavior? Which laws have the greatest impact? Can current laws be made more effective through better enforcement, or do they require amendment? This kind of rigorous, credible research can inform and guide the crafting and implementation of laws that promote public health.
