Objectives. To assess the effectiveness of pharmacy student-led education in adults experiencing homelessness.
Methods. Five groups of pharmacy students each developed three Bingo games focused on a primary care health topic (asthma, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, smoking cessation). Each group delivered the content via a one-hour class offered to adults experiencing homelessness at a local outreach organization. Class participants completed a seven-question survey following each class.
Results. Thirty-seven surveys were completed. Results indicated the pharmacy student-led classes were effective in increasing knowledge for the health topic presented. All participants indicated they would attend a future class led by pharmacy students.
Conclusion. Adults experiencing homelessness find learning from pharmacy students about health-related topics effective.
