The Street Medicine Program at Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert campus has received $50,000 from the Desert Healthcare District & Foundation.

The grant will be used to help improve healthcare in underserved communities, provide more mobile medical clinics and improve health-related infrastructure in the Coachella Valley.

“Funds from the Desert Healthcare District & Foundation will provide support for us to continue our efforts to grow our Street Medicine program,” said Diane Vines, the program’s coordinator and a member of the university’s nursing faculty, in the statement.

“We are providing much-needed healthcare services for homeless and unsheltered people in the Coachella Valley, and preparing our future nurses to understand the needs of this vulnerable population.”

CSUSB’s Brian Levin discusses latest hate crime report with Al Sharpton

Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, appeared on a Nov. 21 segment of “PoliticsNation” on MSNBC with host the Rev. Al Sharpton to discuss the FBI’s latest hate crime report that showed an increase in violent hate crimes against people in 2019.

They discussed how the violence spikes during national election years, and how protests by President Donald Trump’s supporters over the election results, Trump’s baseless charges of voter fraud and his refusal to concede could play into increasing hate crimes.

“Mark my words, we’re going to see an insurgency,” Levin said. “How hot it gets is going to be interesting.”
