Southern California Physicians for Health Equity (SCOPHE) is an organization comprised of attendings, residents, and medical students from throughout Los Angeles and neighboring counties. SCoPHE focuses on facilitating change that directly improves the health of our undocumented & documented patients and their communities. We spoke to members of SCoPHE about their work, impact, and how to inspire other providers and agents of change.
LA PUBLIC LIBRARY
We met with members of the La Public Library about The Source program. Meeting each month, The Source provides a one-stop shop of services, resources and assistance to the homeless and low income residents. More than a dozen agencies gather at The Source, offering services in-house in order to cut through much of the bureaucratic red tape and hurdles that can delay the process of attaining temporary housing or even emergency shelter.
