President's Discretionary

Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut

2023 - $25,000

This funding will support work to establish a medical-legal partnership between Statewide Legal Services and Malta House of Care, a free mobile medical clinic that provides care to uninsured adults. In a medical-legal partnership, a lawyer becomes part of a health care team, and can help address challenges such as access to housing or benefits – issues that aren’t medical but can have a significant effect on people’s health. The work funded by this grant will include surveying patients to identify the barriers they face to health equity, examining features of other medical-legal partnership models to identify what would work in this partnership, and identifying resources to ensure sustainability.
