The first day of seeing patients began today. As you may have already read here, this is the 2nd appearance in Los Angeles. In 2009 the first event was held at the Forum and this event is at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, where the Clippers used to play. I read today they were over whelmed with people needing dental care, which is limited due to time with what they can do. This was nice for Maria Shriver to make an appearance and add opening statements, drawing attention to the problem we have with healthcare in the US.
The clinic will run and be open for 7 days. On the right hand side of the blog here I have a rolling update on what RAM posts on Twitter, click on any update and it will take you to their information page on Twitter. The video below is the opening ceremony.
