BENEFITING: METROHEALTH FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2018
Docs run the Streets for Docs On The Streets (DOTS)! Every Friday night from fall through spring, doctors, nurses, and medical residents from MetroHealth’s Department of Family Medicine volunteer at St. Malachi church on West 25th Street in the heart of Cleveland to provide care to the homeless. We bring medical care to some of Cleveland’s most vulnerable populations, many of whom deal with a variety of illnesses and conditions. Throughout the year, MetroHealth medical residents collect necessities such as over-the-counter medications, blankets, boots, socks, foot care products, canes, reading glasses, warm clothing, sleeping bags and tarps to be distributed to men and women who are exposed to our region’s harsh weather. We also get to teach university and medical students who volunteer their time with us! The MetroHealth Family Medicine residents and faculty aim to run and fundraise for DOTS, so that we can collect more to give to the homeless. Cheers!
