The Project

My project will solve legal issues affecting the health of low-income children and their families through a dynamic medical-legal partnership. I am joining the Child Health Law Partnership launched in 2008 by the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. My project will elevate the ability to respond to housing conditions cases referred to Child HeLP through specialized advocacy. My project will secure environmental justice for low-income clients.
