LAGBAC is partnering up with Legal Council for Health Justice, formerly AIDS Legal Council, to provide pro bono legal services to Chicago's low-income population. We would like to invite you to participate in this opportunity to make a difference in our community. Lunch will be provided. Please see below for details. _______________________________________________________

WHAT: Medical Records Marathon
WHERE: Legal Council for Health Justice (17 N. State Street, Suite 900)
WHEN: Saturday, March 9, 2019 (9am to 4pm)
DETAILS: Legal Council for Health Justice provides free, expert legal assistance to low-income people in need. Legal Council’s Homeless Outreach Project (HOP) provides public benefits advocacy to long-term homeless individuals who also suffer from severe mental illness. In order to build a strong case, HOP staff review and summarize extensive medical records. LAGBAC volunteers will spend the day at Legal Council reviewing and summarizing medical records, which will not only be a significant help to HOP staffers but also provide LAGBAC members with a better understanding of the challenges these clients face. _______________________________________________________

All volunteers will be trained by Lisa Parsons, who manages HOP and Kevin Mork will provide additional information about Legal Council. This is a great volunteer opportunity for LAGBAC members to learn more about and engage with Legal Council, which has long been supported by LAGBAC. For more information about Legal Council, please visit: www.legalcouncil.org. _______________________________________________________

If you would like to volunteer or have questions, please contact Nick Ventola at naventola@gmail.com before February 22nd.
