Session: “Building Capacity through Medical-Legal Partnerships”
Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Pacific Time

Medical-legal partnerships, which integrate public interest legal professionals into existing health care teams, can strengthen existing approaches or spearhead a health system’s strategy for addressing the social determinants of health. For example, providers can use MLP to build capacity to assist patients with housing, public benefits, health insurance, as well as legal aid related to immigrations, tenants’ rights, education, or employment issues. In this session, hear from Alameda Health System, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and Harbor UCLA Medical Center about their innovative programs featuring MLPS, along with a perspective from the National Center. Presenters: Lee Anna Botkin, Dennis Hsieh, Juan Hurtado-Rodriguez, Ellen Lawton, and Helen Pagilagan
