Description

Dr. Withers intends to describe his efforts to expand medical teaching and care to excluded populations (domestic violence initially and then the street homeless). He will describe the evolution of Operation Safety Net with the impact it has on patient care, coordination of care, and medical education. Finally, he will describe how the street medicine model spread throughout the US and now to over 100 cities worldwide.
