APRIL 19, 2016

Child HeLP, our partnership with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, was recognized in April 2016 as a 2016 Outstanding Medical-Legal Partnership at the National Medical-Legal Partnership Summit!

Child HeLP was specifically cited for its depth of integration between Legal Aid and CCHMC and for its contributions to research. “Our team is honored to receive this award,” remarked Elaine Fink, co-director of Child HeLP and managing attorney at Legal Aid Society of SW Ohio. “It is gratifying that our work contributes to development of best practices and helps to raise the bar in achieving results and providing assistance for over 10,000 children and their families as well as training over 450 pediatric residents.”

Congratulations to the Child HeLP team!
