Clinics at five Oakland, CA, schools offer free healthcare

San Francisco Chronicle, March 3, 2008
Students at five Oakland, CA, schools will have access to free healthcare as part of a $3 million grant from Kaiser Permanente to provide services to children who would otherwise end up in the emergency room or with no care at all. The clinics will offer care in mental health, sexually transmitted infections, chronic disease management and other day-to-day health problems. In addition, the clinics will provide preventive health education.
