Description

As a medical-legal partnership, Project HEAL (Health, Education, Advocacy, and Law) helps families and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities address civil legal issues that they face in their everyday lives. Project HEAL's successful advocacy and legal services have created ripple effects to the faculty, staff, and trainees at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. To demonstrate this impact, an online survey was conducted by clinical professionals throughout the different departments.
