2017 MLP Summit agenda online

Monday, February 6, 2017

On April 5-7, 2017, hundreds of leaders and practitioners from the public and private sectors will gather for a national conversation about how to integrate health and legal services to better address the social determinants of health.


The 2017 Summit features plenary sessions on medical-legal partnership’s value in veteran and complex care settings, as well as sessions on quality improvement measures and the future of MLP in the current healthcare landscape. Workshops, affinity groups, and an accredited poster session will offer new research and practices related to the integration of care, including sessions on outreach and enrollment, information sharing between civil legal aid and health care organizations, screening for social determinants of health, and more. The Summit is approved for continuing education credit for doctors, lawyers, nurses, and social workers who attend.
