UW Medicine nurse Mary Larson provides care for people at Harborview Medical Center's Pioneer Square Clinic. Many patients there have experienced homelessness. 

Shanda Taylor-Boyd appears the picture of health, far more youthful than her 53 years suggest. But she suffers from “the silent epidemic,” traumatic brain injury.
