Oct. 14, 2020 - University of Houston Law Professor Jessica Mantel will be providing her health law expertise as a member of the advisory committee for the University of Houston's HEALTH Center for Addictions Research and Cancer Prevention, which recently received a $11.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.

"This new center is poised to play a vital role in reducing health disparities in Houston by addressing the mental health challenges that lead to higher addiction and cancer rates in marginalized communities," Mantel said. "I am honored to be a part of this bold initiative."

Mantel, the George A. Butler Legal Research Professor and Co-Director of the Health Law & Policy Institute, joined the Law Center faculty in 2010. She is a leading scholar on the legal, ethical, and policy issues related to new models of health care delivery and how they may address the social determinants of poor health.
