The Project

Rachael Knight is the legal director of the Family Advocacy Program, a medical-legal partnership of the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford. Through multi-disciplinary collaboration between medical professionals and patient families, the Family Advocacy Program addresses health disparities for low-income children by using legal advocacy to remove non-medical barriers to children’s health, educating medical providers about patient families’ legal rights and developing a legal services model in which attorneys and physicians work together to advocate for systemic change.
