Los Angeles-area uninsured flood a clinic at sports arena

Los Angeles Times, August 12, 2009
About 1,500 people have made their way to an Inglewood, CA, sports arena where dozens of volunteer doctors, dentists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are providing free medical services. Remote Area Medical Foundation is a trailer-equipped service that has staged health clinics in rural parts of the United States, Mexico, and South America. It brought its health camp to urban Los Angeles County to begin an eight-day stint that the group's officials described as its first foray into a major urban setting.
