LAW 643: Medical-Legal Issues in Children's Health

(Same as PEDS211)This service-learning seminar is open to law and medical students interested in exploring the link between poverty and children's health, and how the professions can work together to improve health outcomes for low-income children. The course consists of four components: (1) weekly class meetings in which we will discuss a series of medical-legal issues (e.g., asthma, immigration, health insurance, etc.) with guest lecturers from the medical and legal fields, selected for their expertise on each topic.; (2) intake interviews with patient families at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital or the Ravenswood Family Health Center in East Palo Alto, and an analysis of their medical-legal issues; (3) a group project focused on a local or state-level medical-legal policy issue (e.g., obesity prevention); and (4) a final paper that law and medical students will co-write in pairs. The course is linked to the Peninsula Family Advocacy Program. You can learn more about it at www.peninsulafap.org.
