The first U.S. Medical-Legal Partnership for Children was founded in 1993 by nationally-renowned pediatrician Dr. Barry Zuckerman of the Boston Medical Center. He found that his skills as a doctor were insufficient to keep his low-income pediatric patients healthy. His innovation – bringing poverty lawyers into the medical setting to address social issues that make children sick – launched a national movement. There are now more than 80 such partnerships around the nation. The Tulsa MLPC is the first in Oklahoma and one of a handful in the Southwest.
Through a medical-legal partnership, the MLPC lawyer can help patients navigate complex government and community systems that may hold solutions to social determinants of health. Examples are income supports for food-insecure families, utility shut-off protection during winter months, and mold removal from the home of asthmatics. The Legal Aid Services & OU Medical/Legal Partnership is housed at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Pediatric Clinic. Services may be accessed by patients at the clinic through the social workers.
For more information about this partnership, contact LASO’s Tulsa Law Office at 918-584-3338 or 918-295-9457.
