Jonathan Wong, MD, PGY-2  Founder & Chair of Board of Directors jwong@med.wayne.edu  While a medical student at Wayne State University School of Medicine, Dr. Wong first caught wind of the street medicine movement and formed a vision to go directly to the streets and shelters to serve Detroit's homeless community. Through partnerships with faculty and community organizations, he quickly developed Street Medicine Detroit into a socially-conscious healthcare force and model for other medical groups in the city. Now a family medicine resident at University of Toronto, Dr. Wong still remains heavily involved with the organization as the Chair of Board of Directors.

Lydia Adkins, CPSS  Road Home Outreach lfoskey@nso-mi.org  Ms. Adkins first encountered NSO in 2004 while personally experiencing homelessness, mental health issues, and addiction. At NSO, she received the help she needed through the Tumaini Center, Addiction Treatment Services, and The Road Home (formerly known as Helping Hands). In January 2008, she was housed and began the process of recovery. By August 2009, she began working for NSO as a member of The Road Home. Ms. Adkins is incredibly grateful for the opportunities and the second chance NSO provided her. Her passion for her work stemmed from her own personal experience of moving beyond homelessness and addiction; now, her passion derives from her desire to help others do the same.
