Global Links Mingle + Learn with Dr. Jim Withers

Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Time: 6:30 - 8:00 pm
Location: Global Links

In 1992, Dr. Jim Withers, an internal medicine physician, began providing medical care to Pittsburgh’s unsheltered homeless population. He partnered with street-savvy formerly homeless individuals and, initially dressing as a homeless person, began to make nighttime street rounds in the alleys and under the bridges of the city. From this initial outreach service other clinical volunteers joined in and Operation Safety Net was born.

Join us for a viewing of the short documentary, One Bridge to the Next, that cronicles Dr. Withers' efforts to bring healthcare to the homeless. 

Following the documentary, Dr. Withers will discuss the impact that the Street Medicine Institute is having in cities worldwide and how he works toward his vision of providing compassionate care for the world's homless.
