We team up with local organizations to run free health clinics in Fresno, Riverside and Oasis/Thermal California.  These health clinics take place in community centers or high schools and provide a host of services including (as possible)

  • Dental Care – cleaning, fillings, extractions
  • Vision Care – eye exams and glasses provided same day
  • Medical Exams and some prescriptions
  • Blood Pressure Screening
  • Diabetes Screening
  • Physical Therapy
  • Chiropractic Care
  • Women’s Health Screening (breast exams, etc)
  • Nutrition advice
  • Acupuncture
  • Alternative Medicine


Community Organizations (Social Services, Police Department, Fire Department) also get into the act and provide such things as

  • Car seats
  • Bike Helmets
  • Information/Help on registering for Social Services


Local Radio stations often come and do a live broadcast and play music to keep people’s spirits up while they wait in the long lines going from station to station.

Our patients often camp out overnight in order to get a place in line for the clinics.

None of these clinics would not be possible without the generous support of

  • Tzu Chi – the dental equipment, chairs, organization
  • Local Doctors and Dentist to supply follow up care after we leave
