SHAR(ED) is the Stanford Health Advocates and Research in the Emergency Department program. We are a group of undergraduates who aim to improve the lives of patients in the Emergency Department and other healthcare settings using a public health approach. We currently run two programs for our patients.
Stanford Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention (SASBI): SASBI screens patients in the ED for risky alcohol behaviors to help our patients avoid preventable illness and injury.
Help Desk: The mission of Help Desk is to understand the social and legal needs that may affect the health of patients who present to the ED and to address these needs by connecting patients to appropriate community resources.
