Peter Neilsen (J.D. ’19) and Mariam Slaibi (B.A./J.D. ’20), students in the Health Law Partnership (HeLP) Legal Services Clinic, created new brochures for the clinic. The students used skills they learned through health literacy trainings offered by Iris Feinberg (Ph.D. ’15), assistant director of the Adult Literacy Research Center at Georgia State University College of Education and Human Development, to create the brochures.
The students also consulted with Feinberg, Center for Law, Health & Society associate director Stacie Kershner, and HeLP’s partners Atlanta Legal Aid Society and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to create the final product.
Students Laura Trejo (J.D. ’19) and Gabi Medina-Nunez (J.D. ’20) translated the brochure into Spanish.
“The brochure now lays out what potential clients need to know about HeLP– what HeLP is, the services HeLP provides, the types of legal issues HeLP addresses, who may qualify for HeLP and how to reach HeLP– in straightforward, easy-to-read language,” said Kershner. “We appreciate our students working to make information about HeLP more accessible to families who need it.”
