Segment 1: Taking Medicine to the Streets
It may seem strange to make a house call to someone who’s homeless, but that’s precisely what those who practice street medicine do. Last year, the Fourth Street Clinic (which offers health care to the homeless) and Volunteers of America started an outreach program to practice medicine outside the clinic, based on a model created by Dr. Jim Withers. Withers and Jennifer Hyvonen from the Fourth Street Clinic join us to talk about the benefits and the challenges of taking medicine to the streets.

Segment 2: Children in Poverty
A new study shows an 80 percent increase in families with children living in low-income areas. We’ll talk about what the findings mean and what it will take to move these families out of poverty.
