California clinic aims to serve low-income families

Los Angeles Times, April 3, 2008
The Sun Valley Health Clinic has opened on the grounds of a local middle school in Sun Valley, located in the northern tip of Los Angeles. Officials hope that by placing a full-service community clinic on a school campus, it creates a convenient location for families to get regular health services. Proponents are hailing the facility as a turning point for the district of 84,000 mostly working-class Latino residents, where one-third of the population is uninsured.
