I am delighted to welcome Professor Nicole Huberfeld who will be blogging with us this month. Nicole is the Gallion & Baker Associate Professor of Law at the University of Kentucky College of Law and Bioethics Associate at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. Before joining the UK faculty in 2005, she was the Health Law Faculty Fellow at Seton Hall Law School. Nicole teaches structural constitutional law and a variety of healthcare law classes. Her scholarship focuses on the cross-section of constitutional law and federal healthcare programs with a particular interest in federalism and Spending Clause jurisprudence. Her article, Federalizing Medicaid, will be published this month in the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law. She has been the recipient of the Duncan Teaching Award, a nominee for the University of Kentucky Great Teacher Award, and a nominee for the ALI Young Scholars Medal.
