Supporting the high school graduation and continued success of youth experiencing homelessness
Arizona university students opening health clinic for homeless
Some of Arizona’s university students will get a taste of real-world experience this weekend, all while helping those in need.
The group of about 70 students from Arizona’s three public universities — Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and University of Arizona — are part of a group called the Student Health Outreach for Wellness (SHOW) initiative.
Pamela Thompson, research professor with ASU, Thompson said they will be at the Human Services Campus of the Central Arizona Shelter Services providing a wide array of free health services for homeless people in Maricopa County on Saturday.
“We’ll be providing primary healthcare services and in addition we’ll also be providing hearing and speech pathology services,” she said. “But we also want to really focus on a holistic view of what health and healthcare is.”
