CBC: Physicians, doctors-to-be help out at Winnipeg shelter

February 18, 2016 — 

As the CBC reports:

Resident physicians and University of Manitoba medical students lent a helping hand to those in need at Siloam Mission Wednesday.

“There’s a growing attention towards how the socio-economic factors of a person’s life really determine their health,” said Dr. Leslie Anderson.

Anderson and a group of her peers spent the day at the Winnipeg shelter learning first-hand what goes into making the place run, and who is on the receiving end of its services.

“We wanted to have a better understanding of our patients — how they are in the community, how they live — so that we can treat them much better when hey come into us,” Anderson, who is the co-president of the Professional Association of Residents and Interns of Manitoba, told CBC News.
