Florida PSR's Kids Klinic Serves Homeless Kids

October 11, 2013

Kids Klinic in Florida is being worked by Student Physicians for Social Responsibility (SPSR) member, Jennifer Le! She is with a 3 yr old boy who has a fever, along with Jeannette Fleischer, ARNP.

SPSR establisthed the Kids Klinic at a homeless shelter 5 years ago. Students had approached PSR mentor, Dr. Lynn Ringenberg, asking to work with homeless kids, since they get little exposure to pediatric patients their first 2 years of medical school.

Now, the clinic is twice a month from 5:30-7:30. Research has shown that the homeless are among the most vulnerable groups in developed regions, suffering from high rates of poorly controlled chronic diseases, smoking, respiratory conditions and mental illness….with women and children being the most vulnerable and even more so due to the effects of climate change. One of our goals is to educate parent(s) on some of these dangers, like heat exposure, infectious diseases, like West Nile, second hand smoke and other air pollution etc.
