Line for free clinic offers a look into the faces of Los Angeles uninsured

Los Angeles Times, April 26, 2010
Nearly 5,600 people lined up outside the Los Angeles Sports Arena on April 25 to claim wristbands and a chance for free dental and medical treatment at a massive health clinic this week. The seven-day clinic, which starts April 27, will include vision exams, mammograms, and diabetes screening, among other services. A team of more than 300 volunteer doctors, dentists and other medical professionals each day will see patients from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
