Greg Measer speaks about his JD experience

“The description of ASU's public health law program aligned perfectly with my interests. Other schools didn’t fulfill my needs because there are such distinct differences between health law and public health law. Health law is about fraud and abuse, and provides a return on investment. Public health focuses more on policy, academics, research, and writing.”
