Aligning in Action: MLPB
This case study highlights the MLPB (formerly Medical-Legal Partnership | Boston), which equips communities of care with legal education and problem-solving insights to foster prevention, health equity, and human-centered system change.
MLPB is expanding care teams’ “toolboxes” to include familiarity with people’s basic legal rights, risks, and remedies. Through training, consultation, telementoring, and technical assistance, MLPB supports communities of care to more effectively tackle social care partnering with the people they serve.
Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and managed by the Georgia Health Policy Center, is focused on learning from stakeholders across the nation about effective ways to align these three sectors to better meet people’s goals and needs.
