Two weeks ago, our Senior Staff Attorney for our New Jersey office, Charlotte Hollander, presented on “The Benefits of Having an Attorney Embedded in the Medical Clinic” as part of a symposium at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (Rutgers) in New Brunswick, NJ, sponsored by the Central Jersey Legal Services.

Our South Jersey program is embedded in the Garden State Infectious Disease clinic in Voorhees, NJ.

As part of her presentation, Charlotte gave examples of how our clients greatly benefited from the partnership between health care providers and legal staff. Among the issues Charlotte discussed was the connection between housing and good health outcomes.
