Annual Medical-Legal Partnership Summit

The 11th annual Medical-Legal Partnership Summit will be held April 6-8, 2016, in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis! If you have questions about the MLP Summit, please contact Kate Marple at kmarple@gwu.edu.

About the Annual Medical-Legal Partnership Summit

Each spring, the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership hosts a national conference that brings together hundreds of leaders in health care, law, public health, social work and government to share ideas, insights and best practices about how the integration of legal care and health care can help address social determinants of health for vulnerable people and how these practitioners benefit from working together.

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. Past Summits have been approved for professional credit for physicians, nurses, social workers and attorneys who attend.

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.

11th Annual MLP Summit — April 6-8, 2016
Indianapolis, Indiana

The 11th annual Medical-Legal Partnership Summit will be held April 6-8, 2016, in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis!

On Wednesday, April 6, an optional half-day Medical-Legal Partnership 101 Intensive pre-meeting will help ground individuals in the medical-legal partnership approach and provide an introduction to the more advanced topics covered during the main Summit on Thursday, April 7, and Friday, April 8. A full Summit agenda will be available on our website in January 2016.

We recognize that Indiana was in the news this year for the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act, which has now been overturned. In making the decision to bring the Summit to Indianapolis, we carefully selected a hotel that is an LGBT-friendly company, and that actively supports a welcoming and inclusive environment which values and respects others regardless of sexuality or gender identity. We will look for similar practices from all local vendors we use.

Call for Workshop Proposals and Posters

We will issue a call for workshops proposals at the end of September and one for posters in early November.
