Free Healthcare For Los Angelenos

healthcare
It’s been forever people but I’m back. I won’t even say that I’ll be consisitent but I’ll try. My struggle is to keep you informed and offer hope for your employment future, and if nothing else, possibly deliver a laugh. I see in my absence, another unemployed and fabulous has reared it’s head. Honestly it looks like a great site for free events and other musings but it’s not me. On another note, it’s been over a year and I am still unemployed and fab! I was feeling more unemployed than fabulous for a while but I switched gears. I’m no longer waiting for an opportunity but making them. I encourage you to do the same. But like most fledgling entrepreneurs, I’m still without health insurance (Come on Obama, work that universal healthcare plan out now!). Don’t sleep, the nurse at my Community College is on point, but they don’t offer health screenings. Which is why I’ll be heading out to this week’s awesome offering at the Inglewood Forum.

Hundreds have already lined up to receive free medical, dental, and optometry services. Thanks to volunteer doctors, dentists, and nurses, the uninsured and underinsured can receive access to a remote health clinic located inside the Laker’s old house. Individuals will not be required to show proof of income or insurance or documentation of any kind for treatment, according to organizers. Only 1,200 people a day will be scheduled for the 45 medical exam rooms, 100 dental stations and 25 eye exam sites set up at The Forum. Full exams, including Mammography, chest X-rays, PAP smears, blood pressure screening and diabetes screening will be offered. Prescription eye glasses will be fitted and prepared on site according to the organizers.
I’ll be camped at 4am tomorrow, gunning for that number one spot!

Cheers.

The Forum is located at 3900 W Manchester Blvd
Inglewood, CA 90305-2200
Clinic hours 5:30am – 6pm
now until 8/18
