Twenty-four proposals will be selected for 75-minute workshops. Sessions will be grouped into three tracks (1) Whole Person; (2) Whole Team; and (3) Whole Communities. Detailed guidance for proposals in each track is available here.

You DO NOT need to work with a medical-legal partnership in order to present a workshop at the Summit. In all workshop tracks, preference will be given to proposals that take a layered approach and include a broad range of perspectives. Preference will also be given to proposals that include consumer presenters. NOTE: Full tuition and travel scholarships are available for consumers who present workshops.

We want to feature the newest and best quantitative and qualitative research highlighting the role that laws and legal policy play in things such as health equity, the value of an integrated approach to care, the health care workforce or system, and community level policy change. Twenty abstracts will be selected for poster presentations during an accredited poster session on Thursday, September 19 from 3:15 – 4:30 p.m. Posters will be grouped and displayed in three tracks: (1) Whole person, (2) Whole Team, and (3) Whole Communities. Detailed guidance for abstracts is available here.

The poster session is accredited, meaning eligible attendees will receive continuing legal, medical, nursing, or social work education credit for attending, so authors are required to stand with their posters during this hour and hold discussions with participants who are circulating among the poster boards.
