About this Webinar Series
As part of our work as a HRSA-funded National Training and Technical Assistance Partner (NTTAP), we published a toolkit that provides the health center community with information and resources to start, strengthen, and sustain a medical-legal partnership (MLP), and we hosted a 5-part webinar series to unpack the learnings from the toolkit.
