About our Speaker

Lindsay Fox

Lindsay Fox MSPAC, PAC is a faculty member in the Department of Internal Medicine at UNM School of Medicine and currently serves as a founding partner and the director for the Center for Inclusive Health at UNM. This Center is the operational home for the Mobile Medical Teams at UNM providing Street Medicine to the unhoused and precariously housed folks in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.

Center for Inclusive Health at UNM (CIH) recognizes that offering direct medical and psychiatric care to the patients on the streets was a significant and important role that UNMHSC could offer. By “Going to the People” these teams can provide acute medical care, initiate substance use treatment and assess mental health, and develop treatment plans all from the street. This direct care delivery model has reduced emergency room visits, provided much-needed follow-up for patients who were hospitalized due to trauma or severe illness and began life-saving treatments for severe mental health and substance use disorder.


The Center for Inclusive Health provides opportunities for research and scholarly work, educational mentorship for residents and students who wish to learn vital clinical and interpersonal skills that are necessary when working with vulnerable populations as well as a conduit for inter-agency collaborations with the City of Albuquerque, the New Mexico Department of Health and other local not for profits.

In addition to her work providing care on the Street, she participates in research and policy development around substance use disorders and mental health in unhoused populations with the Clinical Trials Network at the National Institutes of Health. She serves as a lecturer on clinical and ethical patient care in vulnerable populations at the UNM School of Medicine and UNM Physician Assistant programs. In partnership with the Street Medicine Institute, Lindsay and her CIH Medical Director, Dr. Sara Doorley serve as co-hosts of the Project ECHO Street Medicine ECHO.
