RSVP for lunch by noon on Monday, Oct. 15
Please join the Center for Human Rights & Justice and the Student Health Law Organization for an informative discussion on Medical Legal Partnerships.
Across the U.S., health care providers who take care of low-income individuals and families are turning to new specialists to help keep them healthy and safe: attorneys who practice poverty law.
Medical-legal partnerships integrate attorneys as a vital component of the healthcare team. Through direct legal assistance, institutional and systemic policy change, MLPs address the non-medical determinants of health, including food and energy security, housing conditions, education and personal safety.
