Northern Nevada HOPES with Sharon Chamberlain

We welcome Sharon Chamberlain to the podcast this week. Sharon is the CEO of Northern Nevada HOPES, a community health center in Reno providing affordable, high-quality, medical, behavioral health, and support services for all. What started as a single-room clinic to serve those with HIV/AIDS has expanded to providing comprehensive, patient-centered healthcare for 14,000 people in our community. Through their presence on 4th Street, they are turning a healthcare desert into a “Corridor of Hope,” including northern Nevada’s first bridge-housing community called Hope Springs and the new clinic being built across the street projected to open summer 2024.
