Anna catinis general member    HOMETOWN:  New orleans, louisiana  MAJOR:  B.A. Health and human sciences  MINOR:  spanish & health care studies  mobile clinic reflection:  Mobile Clinic has taught me the importance of patient advocacy and building rapport with members of our local community to best help treat their ailments. Thanks to my 3 years with MC, I have improved upon my Spanish medical vocabulary and my understanding of the value of long-term, sustainable and preventative primary healthcare. From shadowing clinicians during Clinic Days to seeing a number of the once homeless women I had become close to reveal to me a new set of house keys during Game Nights at the shelter, this organization is the most involved and genuine one I have ever been a part of at SC. Now, I am excited to take the lessons USC’s Mobile Clinic has taught me as I begin medical school in the Fall!  Plans after graduation:  attending the louisiana state university school of medicine.

samuel (sammy) cohen advocate care (2017-2018)    HOMETOWN:  chicago, illinois  MAJOR:  B.s. health promotion and disease prevention  MINOR:  Health care studies  mobile clinic reflection:  Working on the Advocate Care Program for Mobile Clinic was one of the greatest experiences of my undergraduate career. As an undergrad, I wasn't trained to provide medical care to the homeless patients that we treated; however, I could ensure that patients were properly transported to their medical appointments so that professionals could help them heal. The relationships that I formed through mobile clinic, with both patients and other students, will remain with me forever -- reminding me that every person has a unique story that needs to be heard. I look forward to continuing to build upon the relationships formed through mobile clinic as I progress through my professional career.  Plans after graduation:  working at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and USC. At CHLA, I will be working in the Emergency Department at a community resources help desk I helped to create in order to address health disparities in Los Angeles county. I will work as an academic advisor at USC. After, I will apply to medical school in hopes of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.

Catherine desmonD General member  HOMETOWN:  scottsdale, arizona  MAJOR:  B.S. health promotion and disease prevention  MINOR:  health care studies  FAVORITE THING ABOUT MOBILE CLINIC:  Mobile Clinic was one of the most eye-opening and rewarding commitments I had in undergrad, and my time with the group has been formative in my pursuit of medicine and a medical career in public health and serving vulnerable populations.
