The last person that a parent expects to see at the pediatrician’s office is a lawyer. However, medical-legal partnerships help families obtain the legal services that they need to improve their children’s health.
During DC Pro Bono Week, we’ll visit an innovative medical-legal partnership that’s become an integral part of Children’s Law Center’s legal work. Come East of the Anacostia River to meet a Children’s Law Center lawyer — who is right in the middle of a neighborhood Health Center. You’ll learn about the innovative medical-legal partnership model and hear the inspiring stories of clients who have obtained better education, housing, and benefits. Medical personnel will describe their experience with having a lawyer join their treatment team. We’ll also tour the clinic and show you how high-quality medical care can be delivered to low-income DC residents.
Join us in learning how medical and legal issues intersect and how you can get involved with Children Law Center’s work.
Pre-registration is required because space is limited.
