2017 Summit: Integrating Health and Legal Services to Transform Care Delivery
On April 5-7, 2017, more than 400 leaders from the allied health, health, law, and public health fields gathered in National Harbor, Maryland to for the Medical-Legal Partnership Summit. There they shared research, insights, and best practices about where and how to most effectively integrate civil legal assistance with healthcare and community services to improve individual and population health, and to transform the nation’s healthcare system to be one based on value and health equity.
