CareNow at LA Sports Arena Thru Sunday

From CareNow:

Care Now

CareNow, in partnership with Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and numerous health organizations, will host the largest free clinic of its kind in the nation on October 20 to 23 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena located at 3939 S. Figueroa Street in Los Angeles. Three previous events organized by the CareNow team have provided healthcare to thousands of uninsured and underserved in Southern California.

Last October, CareNow partnered with Maria Shriver to produce the Modern House Call – a massive free clinic in Long Beach that ran in conjunction with the Women’s Conference. Prior to that, the same team of local providers and organizers collaborated with Remote Area Medical (Knoxville, Tennessee based) to produce two large free clinics in Los Angeles. Together, these three events served 15,330 Angelenos and provided 36,120 medical, dental and vision services –free care valued at more than $7.1 million. This year, the same group of dedicated community stakeholders and CareNow team of volunteers will undertake yet another groundbreaking effort.

“Working with Maria Shriver’s Modern House Call and before that with Remote Area Medical taught us two important lessons,” said Don Manelli, president of CareNow. “The first is the tremendous need that exists here in Los Angeles. The second is how much we can accomplish together to meet those needs. There are vast healthcare resources in our community eager to help, and we’re expanding our services with every event, providing not only quality care but continuing care for those who need it.”
