caley finalAs announced on our website and in our most recent newsletter,the Health Law Partnership (HeLP), along with two other medical-legal partnerships, is the recipient of a grant from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) to “identify, study, and disseminate practices that improve community health and reduce health inequities.” Read more about the grant and the benefits of medical-legal partnerships such as HeLP in the AAMC’s article, “Medical-Legal Partnerships Help Patients Address Barriers to Health.”

The Health Law Partnership (HeLP) is medical-legal partnership among Georgia State University College of Law, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Atlanta Legal Aid Society, directed by Sylvia Caley, associate clinical professor. Through this community collaboration, health care providers and lawyers work to improve the health and well-being of low-income children and their families by addressing the multiple determinants affecting children’s health. One of HeLP’s core components is interdisciplinary education of graduate professional students through the HeLP Legal Services Clinic at Georgia State Law.
