Thousands of uninsured, underinsured and medically underserved people are expected to attend a massive free health care clinic Sept. 27-30 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.
Medical, dental and vision care will be given to those lucky enough to gain entry to the Care Harbor LA clinic where hundreds of doctors, dentists, optometrists, cardiologists nurses and other health care professionals will volunteer their services. Services include immunizations, mammograms and Pap smears. Extensive patient education and counseling will promote wellness, prevention and self-care among our most vulnerable population.
Care Harbor LA will match patients needing follow-up care with local clinics and healthcare centers that have volunteered to accept referrals and provide a medical home to the patient.
A pre-issued wristband is required to get into the clinic. The wristbands will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis for one day only on Monday Sept. 24 at the Sports Arena starting at 1 p.m. Parking lots will open at 7 a.m. The Sports Arena is located at 3939 S. Figueroa St, L.A., CA 90037. For more information, go to careharbor.org
