We partner with the Morongo Basin Healthcare District and Flying Doctors- Los Medicos Voladares at Community Health Events in 29 Palms and the High Desert. The first took place in 29 Palms in October 2018 while the second event was held in nearby Joshua Tree in April 2019. The clinic serves uninsured and underinsured patients from across the High Desert and beyond.
The event utilizes professional and general volunteers to provide dental and vision services. Dental services provided include cleanings, fillings and extractions. Vision services include eye exams, and also prescription glasses made and dispensed on site. We partner with Flying Doctors to recruit all professionals for the event.
In total, our volunteers have provided over $75,000 worth of services to over 200 patients. We thank everyone who has contributed to the ongoing success of this clinic. We plan to hold this clinic in 2020 and beyond.
