Meeting Encampment Health Needs
The Encampment Med Team is a group of local medical and pharmacy students who have mobilized to deliver health care to unhoused encampment communities in Sacramento County. We were sworn in as disaster relief workers by the Sacramento County Department of Public Health.
Our services include COVID-19 screening and triage, low acuity medical care, healthcare navigation, and public health assessments and interventions. We are working at 7 encampments around the county.
