Strengthening Our Ties: Medical-Legal Partnership Strategies and Opportunities for the Southeast US in 2019 and Beyond
Building upon the foundational MLP statewide conferences held in Florida in 2016 and 2018, this summit will expand to bring together Medical-Legal Partnerships (MLPs) from across the Southeast United States. This year's summit is structured primarily as a hands-on workshop with 1) one half-day focused on MLP data collection and program evaluation (suitable to all MLPs, whether newer or more experienced), and 2) one half-day focused on opportunities for upstream activities at the state or regional level.
The Summit will feature both plenary sessions and small group workshop sessions, and is appropriate for health care, public health, and legal team members, as well as for funders and insurers who are currently (or hope to begin) investing in MLP.

A huge thank you to all who presented and worked tirelessly to ensure that the conference was a huge success. You can view all the resources from the conference here. They are also in the library organized by session.
The Advocate’s Guide to the Florida Long Term Care Medicaid Waiver provides a roadmap to the complex Medicaid program providing home and community-based services for frail elderly and disabled Floridians who want to stay out of a nursing home after they can no longer handle the routines of daily living.
The Guide provides advocates with an overview of the authority governing Florida's Medicaid managed care long-term care waiver and a roadmap addressing basic questions including: who is eligible; how to apply; what to do if an application is denied or delayed; how the waitlist works; what to do if services are denied, delayed, terminated or reduced.
New Federal CHIP Law Will Protect Florida's Children
Joan Alker and the Center for Children and Families have published a new report about how the new CHIP law will work for Florida children and families. Read more about it and check out the interactive map at the Florida Health Justice Project website.
You can review the guide on the web at the Florida Health Justice Project's website or in our library if you're a member of the practice area. The guide is 24-pages long and covers everything the conscientious practitioner needs to know - including 128 legal citations. The Guide was co-authored by leading experts Miriam Harmatz, co-director of Florida Health Justice Project, Margaret Kosyk of Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida, Inc., and Jazmine-Janine Dykes, a third-year law student at the University of Miami School of Law.
The Florida Policy Institute (FPI) has compiled county snapshots with data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Georgetown Center for Children and Families and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, along with local Medicaid expenditure figures provided to FPI by the state Agency on Health Care Administration.
