  Photograph — UC Davis pediatrician Stephanie Flaherty teaches 10-year-old Robert "R.J." Colburn, Jr. the safe way to approach dogs. Flaherty, who uses her Siberian Husky to demonstrate, developed a dog-greeting class as part of an award-winning UC Davis program that brings UC Davis pediatricians-in-training together with five neighborhood groups to make grassroots improvements in children's well-being. Pediatric residents develop a better defined concept of child advocacy while fostering strong community networks in neighborhoods that are typically underserved.

  UC Davis Health System, in collaboration with other community health-care providers and the Salvation Army, funded and helped to develop a temporary shelter where homeless men and women can recuperate after discharge from the hospital. Housed in the Salvation Army shelter in downtown Sacramento, the 18-bed dormitory provides homeless people with a better chance to heal in a clean and stable environment. Shelter residents may stay up to six weeks, receive three meals a day and have access to support services, such as substance abuse counseling. This outreach program now provides the homeless with an option to returning to the streets after being discharged, risking a relapse or further injury.
