Friday, June 23, 2017: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Tiber Creek AB (Grand Hyatt Washington)
This presentation will demonstrate how a public/private partnership is meeting the medical and psychiatric needs of a vulnerable population. With funding and development support from the San Mateo County Healthcare for the Homeless/Farmworker Health Program, San Mateo County's Public Health Policy and Planning program, LifeMoves' Homeless Outreach teams and Puente de la Costa Sur developed a Street and Field Medicine program that provided direct care to the street homeless and farmworker populations. The Street and Field Medicine team will explain the planning stages, their challenges and tremendous client success stories in a panel like discussion.
