Suitcase Clinic: Medical Care for the Homeless

At the Suitcase Clinic, we recognize the need for health services and the barriers to care that exist within the local Harrisonburg community. Rather than functioning in a fixed clinical setting, the mobile services provided by the Suitcase Clinic allow clients to be seen by healthcare providers in private settings within various homeless shelter settings. In collaboration with nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nursing students, PA students, faculty supervisors, and local volunteers, the Suitcase Clinic provides a variety of services to community members through routine clinics.
