Session: “Get Me the Lawyer, Stat! Using Medical-Legal Partnerships to Tackle Patients’ Complex Social Determinants Challenges”
Friday, April 13 at 1 -2 p.m. Eastern Time

Increasingly, physicians are expected to care for populations of patients. Addressing social determinants of health is a goal shared by physicians and public interest attorneys. Medical-Legal Partnerships (MLPs) are interprofessional teams in which physicians and attorneys work toward the shared goal of patient health. This session will discuss the importance of screening for health-harming legal needs and introduce participants to MLPs as one solution to resolve social determinants of health. Presenters: Jillian Catalanotti, MD, MPH, The George Washington University; Ellen Lawton, JD, National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership
