Dr. Randy Christensen has dedicated his life to caring for society’s often abused, unloved children who live on the streets without access to health care. This community event is co-hosted by the Flinn Foundation and the College of Medicine – Tucson.

MEET OUR EXPERT:

Randy Christensen, MD, MPH, is the founder of the Crews'n Healthmobile, a mobile medical unit that delivers free medical care and outreach services to thousands of at-risk infants, children and teens in Phoenix. His presentation will discuss the joys and struggles of establishing the mobile health van while raising a family with his wife, Amy, who is also a pediatrician. Dr. Christensen will share some of his personal experiences of working on the streets and offer advice on making compassionate connections between physicians and patients, keeping emotionally and physically balanced and leaving a legacy.
