6th annual California Street Medicine Symposium

Category: Events

The 6th annual California Street Medicine Symposium is presented by the Keck School of Medicine of USC- Department of Family Medicine and USC Office of Continuing Medical Education. This symposium is not presented by the Street Medicine Institute. 

COURSE DESCRIPTION- Street medicine addresses the unique needs of people experiencing unsheltered homelessness by delivering care directly to them in their own environment; in the woods, under bridges and in encampments. California has seen an explosion of street medicine teams and is leading the way to addressing the profound health disparities that impact the health of our homeless neighbors, and driving creative solutions to create upstream change. The California Street Medicine Symposium is one of only a few street medicine focused conferences in the US, making this a unique opportunity to connect, learn and innovate. This event is designed to bring together street medicine teams, people with lived expertise in homelessness, community organizations, health plans, policy makers, academic researchers, and educators to discuss the current state of street medicine and where we want to go next. This year, in addition to our plenary sessions, we will offer workshops, academic poster sessions and an expansion of our popular “round table” discussions.

TARGET AUDIENCE- The full day symposium is targeting current and aspirational homeless service providers including physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, counselors, therapists, and social workers. We are also targeting people with lived expertise in homelessness, community members, health plans, community organizations, and government representatives.
