Elective Rotation: Homeless Medicine / SUD with Dr. Garrison-Jeckel

Contact: Gillian Zuckerman

Location: Guerneville, CA

Dr. Jared Garrison-Jeckel offers several services for homeless individuals and individuals with substance use disorders in West County that are definitely worth checking out! On Thursday mornings, there is a homeless services “fair” at the Town Hall in Guerneville where individuals without stable housing can take showers, find some clothes, get some food. Dr. Garrison-Jeckel sets up a small booth there with his clinic staff and brings basic clinic services (doctor visits, blood tests, medication refills etc) to his patients where they are at. His clinic also runs a weekly Suboxone group which is a very different model from SAFE clinic’s group. Finally, he sees many of these patients in his regular continuity clinic (though I did not shadow him in this as part of this rotation)
