Patients pour into L.A. Sports Arena for free medical, dental care
Los Angeles Times

An army of doctors, nurses, dentists and other health workers on Thursday began providing free care to a steady stream of patients at the annual Care Harbor clinic at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

Care Harbor founder Don Manelli estimated that 700 to 800 people would receive free care by the end of the day Thursday. In all, the clinic expects to serve about 4,000 Angelenos–many of whom don’t have insurance, or don’t have coverage for services like dentistry or vision care.
