"Give Me a Shot of Anything: House Calls to the Homeless" - Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Give Me A Shot Of Anything: House Calls To The Homeless examines how we as a society treat our least fortunate. This is an exclusive look into the world of the homeless and the doctors who care for them. Those who are willing to look at the ‘bum on the street’ and see the person inside. A person who could be you or me.
Dr. Jim O'Connell is the preeminent expert on health care for the homeless. He also happens to be a charismatic street doctor with unrivaled dedication to his patients. The film follows Dr. Jim and his extraordinary team as they make 'house calls' to the homeless, delivering life- saving medical care and offering their patients a chance to feel whole again.
