A Day in the Life

During the last week of November, Peter Graham accompanied the Mobile Outreach Street Health (MOSH) team as they worked throughout Halifax and Dartmouth.

MOSH is an initiative of the North End Community Health Centre in partnership with Capital Health, providing accessible primary health care services to people who are homeless, insecurely housed, street involved and underserved in our community.

On the MOSH team are full-time nurses, a part-time occupational therapist, with support from physicians at the North End Community Health Centre, and part-time administrative support.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the MOSH team and their community partners who provided me with wholehearted support and access during the week. As well, to the many clients of MOSH who I met during my travels, who allowed me to bear witness at very vulnerable moments in their lives as they struggled for health and well being in the face of many challenges – thank you. It was a powerful reminder that no matter what our circumstances, we all want and deserve to be respected, acknowledged for who we are, and to know that someone cares for us. ~ Peter Graham
