EVMS Street Health: A Community Engaged Learning Initiative

This video doc features one of our formal volunteer coordinators Andy Abayan, currently attending Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Through the Community-Engaged Learning initiative called Street Health, EVMS students learn and serve people in need. Street Health launched during the 2018-19 school year, led by Andy Abayan, now a third-year medical student. Under the supervision of a physician, students conduct health screenings for people experiencing homelessness, provide referrals for follow-ups and collect data for continuity of care.
