Commensurate with experience
The National Health Law Program was established in 1969 as a national resource center on publicly funded health insurance programs and civil rights laws. With
offices on both coasts, we manage a broad array of national, state, and local projects ranging from complex analyses of federal and state laws, class action litigation, and individualized technical support. We provide legal expertise to non-profit law offices
and health organizations, as well as frame new legal theories and work with policy makers to implement programs grounded in the experience and needs of underserved people. NHeLP works on a day-to-day basis with other national and state advocacy and community-based
organizations on strategy, analysis, litigation, and joint activities to address health access problems that imperil the ability of Americans, particularly low-income and underserved populations, to get the care they need. NHeLP is committed to a diverse
staff. Women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ persons are encouraged to apply. For more information, see www.healthlaw.org
