The Project

Situated in the pediatrics department of Boston Medical Center, the Medical-Legal Partnership for Children allies pediatric clinicians with lawyers to ensure that families’ basic needs are met. My project focuses on improving the access of immigrant families to public benefits by targeting the legal obstacles, community myths and fear those families face. Through direct representation, training of clinical partners and collaboration with community groups, I help clients navigate the complex legal landscape around public benefits access.
