Guest lecture and Q&A "Sick and Dying on the Streets: Should healthcare care about urban homeless?"


"Sick and Dying on the Streets: Should healthcare care about urban homeless?"

by Jim Withers, MD and Pat Perri, MD of the Street Medicine Institute, Pittsburgh, PA.

Monday, July 16
4:00-5:00 pm, HSEB 2680

Drs. Withers and Perri have spent decades providing health care out on the streets and under bridges to people experiencing homelessness in the US and around the world. They've found that the kind of care that makes the biggest difference on the streets also has powerful health and cost saving implications for mainstream healthcare.

University of Utah Health Sciences Education Building (HSEB) room 2680 from 4:00 – 5:00 pm to learn how the Street Medicine model promotes the just kind of healing that patients, providers and our health care system needs right now.
