The Health Justice Project shares the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy’s goal of educating the health law leaders of tomorrow.
The mission of the Health Justice Project is to address poverty and achieve health justice through social, legal, and systemic solutions by:
- providing students of law, medicine, public health, and social work with an intensive, challenging education in the fundamentals of practice, effective problem-solving, leadership, and interprofessional collaboration;
- collaborating with other disciplines, community members, advocates, and stakeholders to employ a comprehensive approach to eliminate social determinants of health;
- shaping public policy to create health justice;
- providing highly effective, quality legal representation to low-income individuals to address health harming legal and social issues; and
- promoting best practices to achieve widespread social change.
