Each spring, the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership hosts a national conference that brings together hundreds of leaders in healthcare, law, public health and government to share ideas, insights and best practices about how to integrate healthcare, public health and legal care for vulnerable people.
On odd years, the Summit is held in the greater Washington, DC area to incorporate participation from government partners and to allow medical-legal partnership practitioners to meet with the Congressional Representatives. On even years, the Summit travels to target regional leadership and participation.
2015 MLP Summit
April 8-10, 2015
Greater Washington D.C. area
Who Should Attend?
The Summit aims to bridge education, practice and policy. It is intended for (1) front-line practitioners from healthcare, public health and legal services; (2) faculty, researchers and students from medical, nursing, social work, public health and law schools; and (3) representatives from government and professional associations related to healthcare, public health and law.
The main Summit will open at 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 9 and adjourn at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 10.
There will be an optional Medical-Legal Partnership Toolkit intensive on Wednesday, April 8 from 1 – 6 p.m. The half day pre-meeting will help ground individuals in the medical-legal partnership approach and provide an introduction to more advanced topics on Thursday and Friday. Everyone is welcome to attend Wednesday’s pre-meeting, but we strongly encourage anyone who is new within the last two years to medical-legal partnership or the Summit to attend. This pre-meeting was designed specifically in response to feedback from participants at last year’s conference who asked for additional introductory content.
A full conference agenda will be linked here in January 2015. To get a sense of Summit content, please download the 2014 Summit agenda linked below.
Registration will open in October.
