Thousands Get Free Medical Care at the Los Angeles Sports Arena

Thousands of patients will line up in the early morning hours throughout the weekend for free medical and dental care at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The free clinic is organized by Care Harbor with private donations and volunteers. Doctors and medical professionals from over 60 clinics are volunteering to provide everything from check-ups and screenings to oral surgery and new glasses. Some of the programs offered provide prescription medication and follow-up care for months and years after the clinic closes down on Sunday. Pacifica's Dan Fritz files this report from Los Angeles.
