UofL professor wins health information privacy award

Patient Privacy Rights, a leading health privacy advocacy organization, will award one of its two annual Louis D. Brandeis Privacy Awards to University of Louisville professor Mark A. Rothstein on June 5 in conjunction with the Third International Summit on the Future of Health Privacy at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington.

Established in 2012, the award is given with the approval of the Brandeis family and recognizes significant intellectual, cultural, legal, scholarly, and technical contributions to the field of health information privacy.

Rothstein holds the Herbert F. Boehl Chair of Law and Medicine at the UofL School of Medicine, and he also teaches at UofL’s Brandeis School of Law. The award’s ties to Brandeis make it especially meaningful to him, he said.
