LOS ANGELES (Feb. 1, 2016) – To provide better access to health care services in the East Los Angeles community, Alignment Healthcare and Los Angeles Christian Health Centers (LACHC) have partnered to host a free comprehensive health screening clinic for children and adults on Saturday, February 20, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Alignment Healthcare Center in East Los Angeles, located at 6201 Whittier Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90022.

At the event, a team of high-quality medical and dental providers will offer free medical exams, routine blood work, dental fillings and dental extractions. There will also be free food, refreshments and children’s activities. For more information and to RSVP, please call 888-979-2247.

“With this special event, we want to ensure that everyone in the community has the opportunity to receive basic medical and dental care without cost,” said Scott Reid, president of the Alignment Covenant, the non-profit foundation of Alignment Healthcare. “In addition to medical exams and blood work, we will offer dental services, which are greatly needed in the Los Angeles community.”

The Alignment Covenant’s goal is to foster a culture of proactive care by providing free quality and comprehensive treatment for as many people as possible under the mission of “healing the world one community at a time.”

LACHC staff will be present at the event to assist patients with linkages to ongoing medical care, as well as providing insurance information and enrollment.

“These free screenings are offered as a way for community members to become aware of their health status, and more importantly, how they can prevent the onset of chronic diseases,” said Lisa Abdishoo, M.D., president and CEO of Los Angeles Christian Health Centers. “It is important to know your numbers and how you can improve your overall health and wellness.”
