I have started a program at my school entitled "Get PHED Up!!-Preventive Healthcare in the Emergency Department" Basically it allows medical students to spend time in the ED and counsel patients, provide them with preventive health info and give them phone numbers for local health agencies. It has been very successful with both patients and students. There is a website www.ecu.edu/org/getphedup which fully details the program and how you can start it at your school. Please contact me if you have any questions.
