The Unique Role of Medical-Legal Partnerships in Helping Health Centers Address Disability & Chronic Disease Discrimination | Webinar Series
The National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership, in collaboration with Health Outreach Partners, is offering four 90-minute webinars designed to help health centers address and redress discrimination against people living with disabilities or chronic disease. Given the prevalence of chronic diseases like diabetes, asthma, HIV/AIDS, depression, heart disease, and others, many health center patients face discrimination at work or school, when accessing services or public places, or otherwise navigating daily life because of these conditions. While different groups of people have unique experiences with this discrimination—for example, migrant and seasonal agricultural workers and individuals with immigration status—health center patients facing disability discrimination may have limited access to quality, informed legal services. Health centers play a key role in identifying discrimination at its earliest stages and will learn how to mitigate it by leveraging their own medical authority and resources within the community.
Slides and recordings from past webinars in this series are available in our resources.

Upcoming Learning Collaboratives
Collaborating to Address the Health and Legal Needs of Patients Experiencing Intimate Partner Violence and Exploitation
Health Partners on IPV + Exploitation and the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership are collaborating to host a four-part learning collaborative on partnering to address the health and legal needs of patients and clients experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) and exploitation. The learning collaborative will feature several partnership models and promising practices to develop, sustain, and grow partnerships between health care professionals and legal services providers. Speakers from Colorado Legal Services, Alaska Legal Services Corporation, Asian Health Services, and the Indiana Legal Services Legal Assistance for Victimized Adults (LAVA) Project will each share how partnerships between providers and legal services partners have improved outcomes for survivors and increased access to services. The learning collaborative will also address creating MOUs between civil legal service programs, health centers, and domestic violence programs. Attention will also be given to tools to utilize “CUES”, a universal education approach that allows providers to reach more patients as a form of both prevention and intervention.
