Tucson Family Advocacy Program

A Medical Legal Partnership for Health

 

The Tucson Family Advocacy Program (TFAP) is a partnership of healthcare providers and lawyers working together to improve the health and wellbeing of low-income patients and their families.

TFAP provides free legal services to low-income families in a primary care clinic staffed by Faculty and Residents of the University of Arizona Department of Family & Community Medicine. Within this medical setting, TFAP also teaches healthcare providers about legal issues that impact health and how they can become more effective advocates for their patients.

By combining the unique strengths of multiple professions -- law, medicine and social work -- TFAP helps families obtain the services they need to prevent or resolve crises that undermine health.
