Street Medicine in the Lehigh Valley

An interest in medicine has been a family tradition for Hoonani (Nani) Cuadrado, PA-C. Her father, Michael Sinclair, MD, was a cardiothoracic and trauma surgeon at 

Opens in new tab Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) for 30 years before joining Opens in new tab Doctors Without Borders. As a child, Cuadrado remembers following her hero (her dad) around the world helping people within countries in crisis. She ended up getting her physician assistant degree at Opens in new tab DeSales University, then joining LVHN herself. She’s practiced medicine at the network for 18 years [most recently with Valley Health Partners (VHP)] and now helps people in crisis as program director for VHP Street Medicine. This program is dedicated to bringing primary and urgent health care directly to homeless individuals wherever they are, from shelters to tent encampments.
