Touro University Nevada to Continue to Provide Volunteers From Its Medical School, School of Physician Assistant Studies to Screen Homeless Persons at Cashman Center

Touro University Nevada, the state’s largest medical school and only school of osteopathic medicine, will continue to provide student volunteers from its schools of medicine and physician assistant program to screen homeless persons for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to allowing them access to the temporary homeless facility at Cashman Center.

Under the direction of Dr. Wolfgang Gilliar, Dean of Touro’s College of Osteopathic Medicine; and Dr. Phil Tobin, Director of Touro’s School of Physician Assistant Studies, groups of up to 10 students are performing the screenings on a volunteer basis.

The students plan to be at Cashman from about 4 to 8 pm daily, depending on the numbers of people seeking shelter each day. The school is committed to providing this service for as long as the Cashman facility remains open.
