  • 18 May 2021

The May 2021 issue of the Rhode Island Medical Journal features a commentary highlighting the partnership between CTC-RI and MLPB (formerly  known as Medical-Legal  Partnership | Boston) on offering legal education and problem-solving skills to the community health workforce. Over the last 3 years, MLPB has brought legal expertise and consultation to the Community Health Teams (CHT) on a variety of complex social needs (e.g. immigration, housing, utility shutoff, guardianship). This commentary reflects on the value of lifting the skill set of CHT staff and highlights data points captured over the course of this partnership.
