Bio

Dr. Catherine Crosland has spent her medical career advocating for and delivering high quality health care to vulnerable populations and combatting structural racism and the resulting health disparities. As a homeless medicine doctor at Unity Health Care in Washington DC, she and her team decrease barriers to accessing medical care by meeting their patients where they are and providing clinical care in a variety of settings from shelter-based clinics to street outreach. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she helped envision and operationalize DC’s response to the pandemic for people experiencing homelessness. As a member of DC’s Interagency Council on Homelessness and as chair of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council’s Clinicians’ Network Steering Committee, she brings her clinical experience to bear at the local and national levels to address gaps in care and advocate for systems changes to end homelessness and improve the health outcomes for her patients.
