About the Event:
The Medical-Legal Partnership for Seniors (MLPS) is a unique clinical partnership between UC Hastings and UCSF that provides free legal assistance to low income elderly patients of UCSF Medical Center. Legal services are provided by law students enrolled in a course at UC Hastings, who work under the supervision of law faculty. The legal team works closely with the UCSF medical providers to provide "whole person" legal and health care that promotes the dignity, autonomy, and well-being of low income elderly patients.
The MLPS was launched in 2012 and has just concluded its first full year. Students will present on their experience in the clinic working alongside medical providers on behalf of elderly clients.
Lunch will be provided, so please RSVP here by Monday, July 22nd.
