"This free clinic will be held exactly five years after Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath devastated New Orleans and much of the Gulf Coast," NAFC Executive Director Nicole Lamoureux said. "Five years later, as an oil-related disaster threatens the livelihoods of many of the area's residents, those who still need help will find free medical care there and be connected to additional area resources available to them."
This free C.A.R.E. (Communities Are Responding Everyday) Clinic is not just for the sick but also for anyone who is uninsured and has not seen a doctor recently. All participants will receive preventive primary medical care and be connected to the area's safety-net providers such as free clinics.
Since last September, more than 9,200 uninsured patients received treatment at C.A.R.E. Clinics in Houston, New Orleans, Little Rock, Kansas City, Hartford, Atlanta, and most recently in Washington, D.C.

Volunteers are needed not only on the days of the event, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, but also to help with set up on Aug. 30. Uninsured patients can make an appointment by calling 877-236-7617.
