Healthy Together - Improving Child Health through Medical-Legal Partnerships

Sponsored by Children's Law Center

The last person a parent expects to see at the pediatrician's office is a lawyer - but through medical-legal partnerships, children and families get immediate access to the legal services they need to improve child health outcomes. Come to Adams Morgan (yes - Adams Morgan!) to meet a lawyer from Children's Law Center whose office is right in the middle of a Children's National Medical Center Children's Health Center. Learn about the innovative medical-legal partnership model. Hear the inspiring stories of clients we've helped secure better education, housing, and benefits. Let medical personnel tell you about their experience having a lawyer as part of their treatment team. Finally, tour the clinic and the surrounding neighborhood to see how medical care delivery happens for low-income residents of DC. You'll see parts of Adams Morgan you never knew existed!

If you want to find out about joining other pro bono attorneys who are helping low-income children and families access the educational and health benefits they need to succeed, please join us. This is a fantastic opportunity to get an inside perspective on the intersection between medical and legal issues in DC.
