Upcoming Events

To learn more about any of the events below, contact Tiffany Graves, Executive Director of the Commission, at tgraves@msbar.org or 601-960-9581. 

October 19, 2017: The Medical-Legal Partnership Subcommittee of the Commission will host an invitation-only Medical-Legal Partnership Roundtable at Baker Donelson for health care and legal professionals as a followup to the “Medical-Legal Partnership Learning Session” that was held last May.  Subcommittee members and guests will provide a deeper dive into the medical-legal partnership approach and, through facilitation, assist those in attending with thinking about how the medical-legal partnership footprint could be expanded in Mississippi. Presently, there is only one formal medical-legal partnership in the state. The purpose of this event is to increase the number of these type partnerships and arm prospective partners with the tools and information they would need to have successful collaborative programs. To learn more about this event, contact contact Tiffany Graves at tgraves@msbar.org or 601-960-9581.

October 26, 2017: Tiffany Graves, Executive Director of the Commission, will present at the Mississippi Rural Health Association’s Lunch and Learn Webinar on the topic of “Expanding Access to Civil Justice Through Medical-Legal Partnerships.” She will discuss how the Commission is working to improve and expand access to civil justice to low-income Mississippians in partnership with the state’s nonprofit legal community.  She will also introduce the “medical-legal partnership” concept and explain how the Commission is reaching out to the health care community to more holistically address the needs of legal aid clients. The webinar will begin at noon and last an hour. Learn more and register here.
