Dr. Naheed Dosani hits the road to deliver palliative care to Toronto’s homeless

Dr. Naheed Dosani is a palliative care doctor in Toronto but his patients are not in hospitals and clinics, they’re in homeless shelters, drop-in centres and sometimes even on the streets.

His patients are the city’s homeless, an ebbing and flowing population that numbers approximately 5,000.

“When you’re socially isolated on the streets, who’s advocating for you?” he asks rhetorically.

Well, he is.
