D.C. Council member to teach at SPHHS

D.C. Councilman David Catania, At-Large, has accepted a position as a professional lecturer at GW’s School of Public Health and Health Services, his office announced Wednesday.

Catania will not be compensated for his position in order to avoid any potential conflicts of interest.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to teach at the GW School of Public Health; I look forward to sharing our experiences in the District of Columbia with the students,” Catania said in a statement. “The number and complexity of the health care challenges that we confront in the District are fascinating subjects for advanced study in health policy.”

Catania was first elected to the Council in 1997 and now chairs the Committee on Health.

Catania will host periodic lectures on health, law and policy for law and graduate students and Ph.D. candidates in the Public Health and Policy program, according to the statement.
