A doctor takes accountability

Jim Withers, the street doctor since 1992, along with his friend Mike Sallows, take accountability for their community by helping hundreds of people who live on the streets giving them free medical help. Dr. Jim Withers has gone out five nights a week with his team in the streets of Pittsburgh for the past twenty-two years. Through Operation Safety Net, Jim is able to help those who are living on the streets with various outreach services. Jim also founded the Street Medicine Institute, which provides medical care to those living and sleeping on the streets. Dr. Withers has either founded or help create street medicine programs in over eighty-five communities throughout the world in five continents. He believes that if we help those in need, it will make us better people. I agree.
