I'm starting back at Healthcare For The Homeless today! [View all]



Long-time DU-ers know that for the first four years I was in practice, I worked at a clinic that serves our homeless community. It's the most rewarding work I've ever done. But we were providing care under contract to the civic organization that operated the facility we worked in.

In December, 2014, they refused to renew our contract, and instead hired their own medical provider. I went to work at our mainstream clinic instead. I had the opportunity to serve some wonderful patients, and work with some extraordinary, dedicated medical professionals. But it just wasn't the same as working with the homeless. The sense of mission, the feeling of making a difference, it just wasn't there.

Well, we took matters into our own hands, and have opened a brand new clinic reserved solely for the homeless, and the doors just officially opened three minutes ago.

It will probably be slow for the first few days. But I'm so happy to be back where I belong, and I wanted to share this with you.

I love you all...
