The Street Medicine program
The Street Medicine program is a committed group of physicians, residents,
and community volunteers who travel the roads of Tulare County reaching
out to our most vulnerable patients: the undocumented worker, uninsured,
and homeless population. The group offers preventive screenings (Diabetes,
HTN, HIV, Glaucoma, Valley Fever), wound care, health education, referral
to social services and community health centers.
The program is under the direction of Omar Guzman, MD, Director of Undergraduate
Medical Education, Department of Emergency Medicine at Kaweah Delta.
