Free clinic is swamped again

August 13, 2009|Kimi Yoshino

The free medical clinic at the Forum reached capacity again Wednesday, as hundreds camped out overnight to receive medical and dental care.

The sponsoring organization continues to seek volunteers, including oral surgeons and dental and optical technicians. Volunteers are asked to bring a valid medical or dental license; all supplies are provided. Nonmedical volunteers are also needed, according to the group's Twitter feed, including those who stand in line as place holders for patients waiting for multiple services.

The Remote Area Medical Foundation has staged health clinics in rural parts of the U.S., Mexico and South America.
