For many health funders, investing to help low-income people solve their legal problems is smart, results-oriented philanthropy. Legal aid groups across the country help families secure health care, food, and housing, working to correct bad policy and change how society treats the most vulnerable. Participants learned more about how legal interventions connect to current investment priorities in health philanthropy, especially in an era of health reform.
