Each year, NCMLP hosts a national two-day conference that brings together leaders in healthcare, law, public health and government to share ideas, insights and best practices about how to integrate health and legal care for vulnerable people.
On odd years, the Summit is held in the greater Washington, DC area to incorporate an MLP Capitol Hill Day and maximize participation from government partners. On even years, the Summit travels to maximize participation from leaders in other regions.
2014 MLP Summit
The 9th annual MLP Summit will be held Thursday, April 10 and Friday, April 11, 2014. The location will be announced in mid-June, but we expect to be on the west coast.
Whether you are part of an active MLP or are working to develop one, we strongly recommend that you target participation of at least two healthcare team members for every lawyer who attends. Healthcare team members -- physicians, nurses, social workers and administrators -- overwhelmingly cite participation in the Summit as triggering a dramatic shift in their participation in, and understanding of, the multiple facets of the MLP model. Legal team members -- we encourage you to work with your healthcare partners to lock in an early commitment to both funding and participation of key leaders.
Check back soon for more information.

Just as the medical profession advocates preventive health care, so too by entering into these partnerships with health care providers, the legal profession can advance a 'preventive law' strategy for addressing clients’ social and economic problems and thereby improve clients’ health and well-being, especially those from low-income and other under-served communities.
