WHAT IS A MEDICAL-LEGAL PARTNERSHIP

Reinforcing the Commitment to Health Equity

A Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) is the integration of medical and legal professionals who work together to improve patient health by addressing the systemic legal barriers negatively affecting a person's health and well-being. In a Medical-Legal Partnership, medical, legal, and social service professionals are devoted to pursuing every possible angle to resolve the various health needs of patients.

IMPACT OF MEDICAL-LEGAL PARTNERSHIPS

Helping The Community

Medical-Legal Partnerships are dedicated to  addressing health disparities caused by social determinants of health. This is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we  believe we can facilitate progress in this area. Medical-Legal Partnerships are always striving to make a difference, and we invite you to learn more and lend your support.
