Attending the College’s Detroit Campus, Small served as president of Detroit Street Care (DSC), a street outreach organization providing medical services to those experiencing homelessness in Detroit.
Under the supervision of licensed providers, DSC’s purpose is to go to the people, meet basic needs, build trust, and provide care for both chronic disease maintenance and acute non-emergent care.
This past year, Small was selected as the 2020 National Student DO of the Year and received an Excellence in Public Health Award from the USPHS.
