For the third year, students from the JCHS Physician Assistant Program volunteered to collect information for the January HUD Point In Time survey. Collected nationally at the same time all over the country, the data is invaluable for providers of services to the homeless. JCHS PA students, in groups with a team leader and a City of Roanoke police officer, were charged with surveying people who were living outside within the City limits. They focused particularly on health information so medical attention could be provided to those most at risk.
