Social Justice Tuesday: Want to Know More about MLP?

Attend Next Week’s Social Justice Tuesday on Medical Legal Partnerships

October 16, 2012
Room 133
12:30–1:20 p.m.
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.

Speakers:

  • Amy Alexander: Medical Legal Partnership Unit at Northwest Justice Project
  • Scott Crain:Medical Legal Partnership Unit at Northwest Justice Project

If you would like lunch please RSVP via Symplicity or gatespsl@u.washington.edu by 12:00 pm Monday, October 15.

No RSVP for lunch accepted after 12:00 pm.
