Last week TRLA attorney Susan Zinn was honored by the San Antonio Business Journal as a 2011 Healthcare Hero for her commitment to advocating for low-income Texans in the medical arena.

Zinn, who heads our Medical-Legal Partnership office in San Antonio, is known both for her work with TRLA and for fighting for healthcare for millions of poor Texas children when she took Texas to the U.S. Supreme Court and won, securing almost $2 billion in Medicaid funding in Frew, et al. v. Hawkins, et al.

Zinn, a 1983 graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, works with TRLA part-time while also operating a private practice that allows her to continue to advocate for Texas children and make sure that Texas complies with the Frew decision.
