CMLPC PUBLIC BENEFITS AND SOCIAL SERVICES RESOURCE MATERIALS AND RESEARCH PROJECTS

Resource Materials

CMLPC has developed resource materials to assist medical professionals, social workers and case handlers in finding quick answers to common questions about public benefits and social services. We have also developed patient library materials written specifically for consumers on a full-range of public benefit and social service needs.
