County residents in need of free vision, dental or medical care should clear their calendars: at 8 a.m. Wednesday, September 10, Care Harbor LA an annual free clinic for families and individuals in need, will distribute 1,000 wristbands on a first come basis at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena’s VIP Parking Lot.
Although the upcoming four-day clinic will take place from September 11-14 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., only those who obtained wristbands ahead of time will be seen. Each wristband will have a specific day printed on it designating the day on which patients should return for treatment.
During Care Harbor LA the Sports Arena will be transformed into a medical clinic where hundreds of doctors, dentists, optometrists, nurses and general volunteers will be onsite to serve those who are uninsured, underinsured and in need of medical, dental and vision care.
This will be the sixth massive free clinic produced by Care Harbor, in an effort to bring desperately needed care to the most vulnerable populations in Los Angeles County. The organizers and healthcare professionals who formed Care Harbor, a nonprofit organization, are dedicated to providing free care to thousands of uninsured and underserved people in Southern California. Last year more than 3,000 patients were served at the Care Harbor LA clinic. Just as the previous years, this year’s free health care clinic is forecasted to serve thousands of people.
- One wristband per person.
- Patients will not be admitted into the free clinic without a wristband.
