Meredith Adamo, Dr. Craig Kaufmann, and Megan Smith attended the International Street Medicine Symposium in San Jose, CA in October 2015. They presented the RIMNP pilot program model to an international community of healthcare providers, policy leaders, advocates, and members of the Santa Barbara County homeless community. During the conference, they learned about exemplary street medicine programs from all over the world, and were able to speak with some of the leaders of this field, including Dr. Jim Withers of Operation Safety Net and Dr. Jim O’Connell of Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program.
