The Georgetown University Health Justice Alliance believes that an equitable society, where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and contribute to an integrated and supportive community, requires fair access to health and justice resources. Our work, guided by the national medical-legal partnership movement's innovative model for healthcare delivery, includes training the next generation of leaders in medicine and law to work together to improve the lives of children and families living in poverty.
The Health Justice Alliance joins other medical-legal partnerships in Washington, D.C. working to address the health-harming social conditions that contribute to health and justice disparities faced by people living in poverty. Our faculty, clinicians, health care professionals, students, and policy experts take a collaborative approach to service, education, advocacy, and research. We work together, using law as a tool to improve individual health and wellbeing, transform the systems used to deliver healthcare, and advance Georgetown’s broader goals for health, justice, and racial equity in the District and nationally.
