Health Justice Project


The Health Justice Project was founded by Professor Emily Benfer in 2010 and is a medical-legal partnership clinic between Loyola University Chicago School of Law and Erie Family Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center that serves over 60,000 low-income patients annually at 13 different locations around Chicago. Students of law, social work, public health and medicine enrolled in the clinic engage in interprofessional collaboration to identify and address social and legal issues that negatively affect the health of low-income individuals.
