Talk to people!!
Talk about bringing lawyers into the clinical setting!
Talk about your program with anyone who will listen! (Especially, clinic managers, social workers, general counsel’s office, physician colleagues, volunteer services, development office, potential donors, chief operating officer, chair of department, etc.
What we have developed in Charlottesville will not suit every community, but will have to be adapted to suit smaller communities with different resources. Mechanisms to utilize clinics or community hospitals will have to be developed in order for this program to spread to more rural areas of the state.
