Street Medicine is my first documentary. It was released in 2008. It has played more than 300 times on TV in the US and was selected to several festivals worldwide (KOS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, IDFA, etc.) The best part is that it is still helping to raise money for a very deserving community clinic in Los Angeles called Venice Family Clinic that (it provides free, quality health care to people in need through nine sites in Los Angeles County).
America is the only country in the industrialized world which does not provide universal health care. Initiatives providing free medical care and social services to the homeless and uninsured population in the United States are very few but are making a remarkable difference in their communities.
In Los Angeles' West Side, teams of health workers bring critical medical services to people who are often averse to seeking treatment: a day filled with unexpected events in the life of a successfully but small initiative that combines free medical care and social services to the homeless and insured and that is making a big difference in their community.
