Description

Although we all are patients, we all do not receive the same quality of health care. Dr. Jim Withers, graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, recognized this disparity and began providing medical care to the homeless community in 1992, eventually developing a full-time street medicine program. On September 27th, he will discuss his path to developing Operation Safety Net in Pittsburgh, and how to address patients' needs, form valuable connections, and create health care solutions.

On behalf of Phi Lambda Sigma Pharmacy Leadership Society and Rho Chi Pharmacy Academic Honor Society, please join us for the First Annual Young Professionals Lecture with Dr. Jim Withers, a CNN Top Ten Hero of 2015!
