Congratulations to Dr. Kyle Roedersheimer, NCCEP Resident Board Member, on his recognition by Shelter Health Services in Charlotte, NC for his work as a volunteer physician, board member, and SHS-CMC EM Liaison.
The plaque (on the clinic wall) reads: “Thank you for your dedication and commitment to providing physician care to uninsured, medically indigent, homeless women and children living in poverty and staying in the Salvation Army Center of Hope shelter. Without your regular volunteering in the clinic and at Saturday Health Fairs, they would truly lack access to healthcare and medical services. Thank you also for being on the clinic’s Board of Directors and primary liaison to recruit volunteer physicians from Atrium Health Emergency Medicine Department.”
Shelter Health Services is a free health clinic providing healthcare and health information to uninsured, medically indigent, homeless women and children living in poverty and staying in the Salvation Army Center of Hope, the region’s largest shelter for homeless women and children. All shelter residents may access our free walk-in clinic simply by showing their shelter ID. Lacking money, Medicaid and mobility, for most of our clients, the free clinic is their only source of healthcare.
Congratulations to NCCEP Board Member Dr. Tommy Bernard on his recent appointment by Governor Cooper to the NC Human Trafficking Commission. Fighting human trafficking is one of Dr. Bernard’s passions, and he hopes to make a difference as physicians are often the first point of contact for human trafficking victims. Prior to Dr. Bernard, there wasn’t any physician representation on the NC Human Trafficking Commission. The N.C. Human Trafficking Commission was established in 2012, and studies and combats human trafficking in the state, develops regional response teams to address trafficking, and helps identify gaps in law enforcement’s response to the problem.
