The Street Medicine Institute is excited to announce a special pre-symposium Street Medicine 101 Workshop offered on October 20, 2019 prior to the 15th Annual International Street Medicine Symposium (ISMS 15) to be held Monday through Wednesday, October 21-23, 2019. All ISMS 15 programming will take place at The August Wilson African American Cultural Center at 980 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Pittsburgh Mercy’s Operation Safety Net and the Allegheny Health Network’s Center for Inclusion Health are co-hosting this anniversary celebration of the global street medicine community as it returns to Pittsburgh, the site of the first ISMS in 2005 and the birthplace of the Street Medicine Institute.
We are pleased to offer this special pre-symposium workshop, updated this year for added emphasis on common challenges among new Street Medicine programs. This high-yield introductory session is targeted to those individuals and organizations that may be new to Street Medicine or in need of expert guidance to launch or enhance their Street Medicine activities. This workshop will provide an instructive overview of the history, principles, and practice of street medicine, followed by breakout sessions with experts in the field for individualized guidance and problem solving. Additionally, the newly-formed Street Medicine Institute Student Coalition will provide specific content for medical learners and their faculty interested in launching university-based, student-led programs. Since capacity for this workshop is limited and high demand is anticipated, participants must register in advance to attend.
