When Gwendolyn Majette learned she was returning to the Atlanta area, she reached out to Georgia State Law. Majette is an associate professor with Cleveland-Marshall Law’s Center for Health Law and Policy. During her visit with Georgia State Law, she is looking forward to collaborating with Center for Law, Health & Society faculty, guest lecturing and engaging with students interested in health law. She plans to teach two health law seminar courses in the spring.
Majette’s scholarship focuses on health care reform, delivery system reform, patients’ rights, health disparities and global health. Her research has real-world impact: the United States Commission for Civil Rights, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the United States Senate Special Committee on Aging and the World Health Organization have all relied on her work.
Majette was recently appointed as a consumer representative to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. “I am thinking about how my scholarship can help shape the work of the NAIC Special Executive Committee on Race,” said Majette. “This committee was recently created to help the insurance industry manifestly change the way it operates to promote the health and wellbeing of people of color.”
