    Presented by:
    James Withers, M.D.

    Founder and medical director of Operation Safety Net®, Pittsburgh Mercy’s award-winning, innovative medical and social service outreach program to people who are experiencing chronic homelessness.

    Dr. Withers and Operation Safety Net have been recognized internationally with numerous awards and honors for their work. Recently, Dr. Withers was named one of the 2015 Top 10 CNN Heroes. As an innovative model of care, Operation Safety Net is being replicated or studied in cities throughout the world.

    In 2005, Dr. Withers established the annual International Street Medicine Symposia to foster collaboration in the care of those sleeping on the streets across the globe. In 2008, Dr. Withers created the Street Medicine Institute to help other communities establish street medicine programs, improve existing practice, and create student learning opportunities in street medicine. They currently have partners in cities in North, South, and Central America; Europe, Africa, and Asia.


    Street Medicine is a new approach to health care delivery in which medical services are brought directly into the campsites, along the river banks, and to the abandoned buildings where the unsheltered homeless live. Lessons from working in the reality of this super utilizer population can create positive changes within healthcare field and improve the population health within the community. Also, understanding the evolution of the global street medicine movement and the implications to the medical field and care delivery systems is crucial. A communal based approach is key to one day solving the homelessness crisis we are all seeing in today’s society.

    Every year more than 3.5 million children will require medical treatment for sports-related injuries, the majority of which are avoidable through proper training and awareness. These young athletes are specializing in sports at an earlier age and it has led to a widespread increase of injuries to the adolescents. There are many risks to youth injuries and we need to help bring to light ways to help prevent youth injuries due to specialization and professionalism. There are various resources to help prevent youth injuries and help “slow down” the athlete. Dr. Andrews will distill his practical wisdom and professional advice to combat a growing epidemic of injuries among sports’ most vulnerable population: its young athletes.
