SERVICE IN MEDICINE


BRINGING HEALTH CARE TO THE STREETS


WHEN DR. JASON REINKING (MD ’11) treats one of his patients, he’s not sure when or where he’ll see them next. In fact, he may not see them again at all. That’s because Reinking’s patients are among the homeless residents of Oakland, California—a population estimated at 3,000 to 4,000 people who generally lack access to any type of health care. Sometimes Reinking is the first doctor they’ve seen in years, or the first they’ve ever seen. As part of the Street Team Outreach


Medical Program within the Roots Community Health Center, Reinking


provides services and medical care for the chronically homeless. During his time at the Stritch School of Medicine, he invested much of his time in seeing how medicine worked abroad—from Egypt to Malawi. While still early in his medical career he took an interest in learning how “the haves influence the have nots,” he said. Today, he is still learning that lesson along the highways of Oakland. His work with people experiencing homelessness earned him Stritch’s Jack MacCarthy Service in Medicine Award and led to the Roots Community Health Center being a finalist for the prestigious Opus Prize, a humanitarian award given by the Opus Foundation in part- nership with Catholic universities. The $100,000 award recognizes those working to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.
