Shade Tree Lefkowitz Hour is an opportunity for students and faculty to learn more about the care provided at the Shade Tree Clinic, Vanderbilt's free, student-run clinic. Shade Tree Clinic patients will share how legal aid has impacted their lives with the help of the Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP), followed by the MLP team’s unique perspective of the case. The second half of the hour will focus on other significant roles the MLP can play in advocating for our patients.
