2019 Regional MLP Summit Registration is Open!

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.

The session is FREE but registration closes June 13th at noon Eastern.  So hurry and secure a spot at this amazing summit.
