Hope for those with no medical dental insurance
On Thursday November 26, The Dr. Oz Show joined The National Association of Free Clinics in Houston, Texas. In one day, over 1,700 Americans were provided with medical care.
The National Association of Free Clinics (NAFC) was founded in 2001 to provide medical, dental, pharmacy, and behavioral health care to those with no insurance. Funded by donations, companies, and organizations and staffed with professional volunteers, allows NAFC to provide this service regardless of the ability to pay.
