Practicing medical-legal partnership during the COVID-19 pandemic

Thursday, April 2, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating health and economic disparities. As urgent health and legal needs intersect during this crisis, medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) are uniquely positioned to respond. While communities’ needs change and grow every day, review our COVID-19 tip sheet with eight things every MLP can do right now to focus their efforts, respond to operational challenges, and help meet communities’ needs during the pandemic.

We published a digital digest of resources that can help MLPs respond to the pandemic. This list of resources will be updated continually. We are also hosting and recording a series of MLP town halls that explore issues like advance care planning, remote legal services, and COVID-19 discrimination. The recordings are available in our resource library.
