My name is Kendyll Coxen, and I am an active alumni/leader within the street medicine program.

My experience has taught me about the various roadblocks patients face in obtaining healthcare, especially in light of housing insecurity.  I have also learned that while being in an established health care setting is helpful, it is possible to meet patients where they are and deliver healthcare with limited barriers.

In the future, my goal is to continue to work with the most vulnerable populations and those struggling with housing insecurity.  I plan to continue to work with our street medicine initiative here in Gainesville, or to continue to provide street medicine wherever I may end up for residency. 

My goals are to continue to advocate for those who need it the most, and to create change that will result in more equitable healthcare for all individuals.
