Description


The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix proudly presents Mini-Medical School, a fascinating community lecture series open to the public.

You will not want to miss this inspiring and unforgettable discussion with an extraordinary doctor who saves lives in a most unconventional way.

PHOENIX BIOMEDICAL CAMPUS STUDENTS AND FACULTY ARE INVITED to hear from Dr. Randy Christensen, who has dedicated his life to caring for society’s often-abused, unloved children who live on the streets without access to health care. In partnership with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, he launched the Crews’n Healthmobile, a mobile medical unit that delivers free medical care and outreach services to thousands of at-risk infants, children and teens in Phoenix. Dr. Christensen is the author of the non-fiction book “Ask Me Why I Hurt,” which is a touching and revealing first-person account of his remarkable work.

He promises to help attendees:

  • Understand the true definition of vulnerable populations.
  • Learn to learn from failure.
  • Grow a team.
  • Connect with the community.
  • Promote innovation.


With tenderness and humor, his presentation will discuss the trials, joys and struggles of establishing the mobile health van while raising a family with his wife, who is also a pediatrician.

*Lunch will be provided to those who register by October 21.

Presenter:

Randy Christensen, MD, MPH, FAAP, is the President and Founder of Randal Christensen Consulting, which supports hospitals, non-profit organizations and foundations in delivering health services to vulnerable populations. Dr. Christensen is the former Division Chief of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, former Chief Medical Officer for Nevada Health Centers and a former trustee for Vitalyst Health Foundation.
