Resource Summary: These Learning Collaborative sessions are designed to empower participants to develop a deeper understanding of how the social determinants of health impact maternal health. Participants will learn how to use the Medical-Legal Partnership as a way to improve maternal and child health outcomes for health center patients and their communities. Over four informative sessions, this Learning Collaborative will provide T/TA to health center staff to develop strategies and action plans for aligning MLP activities with potential policy and population health approaches. We encourage health centers that work with multiple special populations, including pregnant women and children, to share their insights and strategies that can be adapted to communities’ unique needs.

Resource Details: At the end of Session 1, participants will have learned: 1) how to identify the social risk factors that impact maternal health disparities, access, and outcomes; 2) analyze the clinical and non-clinical data to better understand the social risk factors that can be addressed with medical-legal partnerships; and 3) identify specific social risks factors in clinical settings that can be addressed by medical-legal partnerships.
