WSU's Street Medicine Detroit featured in USA Today's college edition


A Wayne State program called Street Medicine Detroit is part of a growing international movement known as street medicine, where doctors take medical care to homeless people who need it but who aren't likely to turn up in a clinic. The new venture between about 100 Wayne State medical students and the Neighborhood Service Organization takes doctors-to-be out of the clinic and into the city, treating homeless people in the shelters, parks and underpasses where they often live.
