CALIFORNIA SUN: Taking Medical Care to the Streets

BAY MADE is proud to share four recent episodes this week from Jeff Schechtman and our friends at CALIFORNIA SUN.

This episode: Host Jeff Schechtman talks with Dr. Susan Partovi, a pioneer in street medicine and author of “Renegade, M.D.” She recounts her journey of providing compassionate care to the homeless on L.A.’s Skid Row. With a career spanning decades, Dr. Partovi offers a unique perspective on results-based healthcare for the most marginalized that emphasizes the urgent need for listening to her patients on the streets to address the homelessness crisis.
