Since the fall of 2017, Boone has been the designated attorney at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, in St. Paul, where a promising health care-legal partnership is taking flight. Boone, a 2015 University of Minnesota Law School graduate, works out of a small office — a box of children’s toys and books near her door. But most days, she’s in patients’ rooms, sometimes with an interpreter, helping worried parents navigate roadblocks that often have little to do with medicine.
