More than 50 health, human service and civic organizations from across the state of Washington are joining together to produce the Seattle/King County Clinic with Remote Area Medical event, Oct. 23 through 26 in KeyArena at Seattle Center. This giant health clinic offers a full range of free dental, vision, and medical care to underserved populations in the region.

Healthcare professionals and other community volunteers will donate time, resources and expertise to serve as many as 4,000 patients at the four-day clinic. “Organizing and implementing an event on this scale requires months of planning, hundreds of volunteers and dozens of actively engaged partners. It represents the serious dedication of a caring community to address healthcare issues at the local level, to make a difference for the most vulnerable among us,” said Christine Lindquist M.P.H., Executive Director of Washington Healthcare Access Alliance.

In addition to the clinic, a free resource fair will be held Oct. 25 and 26 in the Seattle Center Armory to help individuals and families connect with local health, human and social service providers. HealthFest will include offerings ranging from free flu shots and health insurance navigation, to demonstrations of nutritional and fitness ideas, educational discussions and more.
