About Us

The Health Law Partnership (HeLP) is an interdisciplinary community collaboration among the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Georgia State University College of Law to improve the health of low-income children and their families.

 

By combining the healthcare expertise of hospital professionals with the legal expertise of attorneys, HeLP provides a coordinated and integrated set of services to address the multiple determinants of children’s health. HeLP is also an educational project that promotes interdisciplinary teaching and learning. HeLP seeks to improve the public’s health by fostering knowledge, understanding, and a cooperative spirit between the healthcare and legal professions.
