Scholarships will be awarded to nursing students at the Palm Desert Campus who participate in the university’s Nursing Street Medicine program.
The Nursing Street Medicine program increases access to healthcare by serving the sheltered, unsheltered, and other vulnerable populations in the Coachella Valley through nurse clinics and other outreach programs.
Kevin Grisham (geography and environmental studies), Anthony Silard (public administration), David Yaghoubian (history), Diane Vines (nursing) and Vipin Gupta (management) shared their expertise on various topics in the news.
The program has been selected as one of six community partners who will have the opportunity to utilize the mobile unit for medical and educational purposes, which will be purchased by The Desert Healthcare District and Foundation.
The four nursing students are participants in the Street Medicine program that assists the homeless and unsheltered in the Coachella Valley.
Diane Vines’ poster, titled “Street Medicine in the Coachella Valley,” was awarded first place in the Education category for the APNA 34th Annual Conference.
The Regional Access Project Foundation grant will be used to purchase much-needed supplies for the street medicine team to use in the field while providing healthcare services to the homeless and unsheltered populations in the Coachella Valley.
