Bridges to Justice for Children’s Health

June 28, 2018@6:00 am-9:00 pm

A donation of any amount

Lawyers, doctors and health care institutions working together to better the lives of children in Northeast Florida will kick off a five-year, $1 million fundraising campaign June 28 at 6 p.m. at the offices of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Jacksonville. All funds raised will be matched at 125 percent by Baptist Health and will be added to a recently established endowment to fund civil legal aid for children with medical issues. Organized by Jacksonville Area Legal Aid (JALA), the Bridges to Justice for Children’s Health kickoff event will honor Dr. Jerry A. Bridgham, chief medical officer of Wolfson Children’s Hospital. Wolfson Children’s is part of the Northeast Florida Medical Legal Partnership along with Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville, UF Health Specialty Pediatric Clinics, and Community PedsCare®, a pediatric program of Community Hospice & Palliative Care, as well as JALA, which provides legal counsel for children with medical conditions and their families through the partnership. While JALA is seeking to raise $1 million, Baptist Health will match that with an additional $1.25 million, bringing the endowment total to $2.25 million and more than doubling the impact.
