Homelessness is an epidemic that affects over 500,000 Americans of all ages and increases the risk of mortality by 3-4 times that of the general public. Yet, primary care providers receive little training on the specific health risks that affect the homeless nor on how to evaluate and care for these individuals. Join Dr. Chuck Vega as he tackles this vital but oft overlooked topic from a primary care point of view.
