About the Summit
A Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) is a healthcare delivery model that integrates legal assistance into the medical setting to improve the health and well-being of vulnerable individuals, children, families and communities. The model addresses social determinants of health and seeks to reduce and eliminate barriers to improve the health status of individuals and their communities. This Summit brings together the interdisciplinary teams who staff current or upcoming MLPs in the West Coast, in order to share best practices in direct service delivery and policy advocacy.
