ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:
When you're homeless, it's not easy to see a doctor. That's where street medicine comes in. It's an emerging practice, and it can be found in dozens of cities, including Atlanta. That's where Sam Whitehead of member station WABE followed a medical team that visits patients living on the streets.
SAM WHITEHEAD, BYLINE: It's late afternoon, and a van filled with medical supplies idles near an interstate overpass in Atlanta. Herman Ware is getting a flu shot.
HERMAN WARE: Oh, it might sting. Yup, I figured that (laughter).
