From Zero to 60: Medical-Legal Partnership Fundamentals & Strategies

March 2, 2016

Description: Addressing patients' health-harming civil legal needs as part of primary care has emerged as a critical strategy for HRSA funded health centers seeking to address the social determinants of health. Over 75 health centers incorporate civil legal aid as part of the healthcare team to help meet the housing, income, education and other needs of low-income populations, with more in the pipeline. Core components of a successful medical-legal partnership feature strong integration of the health and legal partners, shared priorities, funding and mission, and shared communication and training strategies. This webinar aims to help participants understand: the medical-legal partnership (MLP) approach and field, and how it aligns with existing health centers' services and priorities, especially enabling services; the skills, resources and capacity of the civil legal aid community; and the opportunities for multi-sector engagement across all health centers and civil legal aid offices with a focus on population health strategies.

Participants: HRSA grantees, health center staff, public health officials and legal advocates
