In April, third-year Health Law Clinic students Ester Khaykin and Naomi Tellez gave a presentation on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for Children to the pediatric medical providers of the Neighborhood Family Practice (NFP) Community Health Centers.
In their presentation, Khaykin and Tellez provided an overview of the eligibility requirements for parents applying for SSI for their children. They explained the medical provider's role in providing medical documentation of the child's disability and described the resources available to children and their families in applying for SSI and transitioning into adulthood.
“The presentation was a success and we hope to see many more partnerships with NFP in the future,” said Laura McNally-Levine, director of the Milton and Charlotte Kramer Law Clinic at Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
The Health Law Clinic is one of nine clinics under the umbrella of the School of Law’s Milton and Charlotte Kramer Law Clinic. Every law student undertakes a 3L capstone in one of the clinics or a semester-long externship. Based on the work of the Health Law Clinic and the other clinics, preLaw magazine (Spring 2022) ranked Case Western Reserve University School of Law 5th best law school in the nation in practical training.
