Social Justice Tuesday October 16: Medical-Legal Partnership

 

Presented by: Center for Human Rights & Justice and Student Health Law Organization

 Please join us for an informative discussion on the Medical Legal Partnership:

 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
