Center for Law, Health & Society director, Erin C. Fuse Brown, has been appointed the Catherine C. Henson Professorship. This prestigious professorship is endowed through a generous donation from Georgia State Law graduate Catherine Henson (J.D. ’89).
Henson, an advocate for addressing racial and income disparities in K-12 and higher education in Georgia, also serves on the college’s Board of Visitors, is recognized for her tremendous support of the college with the atrium bearing her name, and has provided financial assistance to many law students through her endowed scholarship. Additionally, Henson gives a considerable amount of her time and is actively involved in the college, providing mentorship to students.
“In all that Cathy does for the law school and our community, she demonstrates so many virtues that we hope that our law students and graduates will exemplify in their lives: integrity, professionalism, strategic vision, civic-mindedness, and dedication to justice,” said Charity Scott, founding director of the health law program, former holder of the Catherine C. Henson Professorship, and Professor Emerita.
“Cathy has made a huge impact on the law school and the lives of our students,” said Fuse Brown. “It is an honor to be awarded the Catherine C. Henson Professorship.”
Fuse Brown teaches Health Law: Finance and Delivery and Administrative Law. She will also be teaching a new required course, Legislation and Regulation, this spring. Her research focuses on the regulation of health care markets, health reform and consumer protections in health care. Her work has influenced state and national policymakers. She has published in leading journals and is an author on the Health Law casebook with a new edition coming soon.
