The Skid Row School of Medicine: Ali Arastu at TEDxUSC

To make real progress in improving the health of the underserved, the poor, and the homeless, our doctors must do more than diagnose and treat patients. Ali Arastu believes a physician's role is to help shape a society where illness and disease is less rampant by understanding the full needs of the communities they service. Officially he is a student at the Keck School of Medicine at USC but he also has chosen a unique way to be a student of other determinants of health, like poverty and our environment. Whether he was on a five-month journey on foot along the Pacific Crest Trail or living on Skid Row, he brought back stories that are having a profound impact on his journey through medicine and life.
