Webinar: Medical-Legal Partnerships for Farmworker Health and Legal Service Organizations

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

When: Thursday, May 2, 2013
When: 11:00am – 12:30pm Pacific Time

Join Health Outreach Partners and Farmworker Justice for the “Medical-Legal Partnerships for Farmworker Health and Legal Service Organizations” webinar.  The purpose of this webinar is to highlight medical-legal partnerships for farmworker serving organizations.  Farmworker patients often experience the negative health impacts of the social determinants of health such as poor housing, employment issues, violence, and not being eligible for health and social programs.  Medical-Legal Partnerships (MLPs) are increasingly working to address the social determinants of health by addressing both the health and legal needs of patients.  Topics will include an overview of medical-legal partnerships, initiatives and strategies, challenges, and recommendations.  Representatives from health centers and legal agencies serving migrant and seasonal farmworkers will serve as panelists and participants will have the opportunity to pose real-time questions relevant to the topic.
