The Unique Role of Medical-Legal Partnerships in Helping Health Centers Address Disability & Chronic Disease Discrimination | Webinar Series (2022). Resource Type: Archived Webinar. Description: The National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership (NCMLP), in collaboration with Health Outreach Partners (HOP), offered four 90-minute webinars designed to help health centers address and redress discrimination against people living with disabilities or chronic disease. Given the prevalence of chronic diseases like diabetes, asthma, HIV/AIDS, depression, heart disease, and others, many health center patients face discrimination at work or school, when accessing services or public places, or otherwise navigating daily life because of these conditions. While different groups of people have unique experiences with this discrimination—for example, migrant and seasonal agricultural workers and individuals with immigration status—health center patients facing disability discrimination may have limited access to quality, informed legal services. Health centers play a key role in identifying discrimination at its earliest stages and will learn how to mitigate it by leveraging their own medical authority and resources within the community.
