    Great article to help raise awareness of the fundamental necessities of life that pro bono takes care of in the aftermath of disasters and in every day lives of those who cannot afford the legal services they need. Kudos to the legal profession! And kudos to lawyers and doctors who take it to the next level by teaming up to provide interrelated medical-legal safety net services. Check out the examples in this op-ed from medical school dean Claire Pomeroy at University of California Davis.
