The community is coming together to produce the Seattle/King County Clinic Oct. 27 – 30 in Key Arena at Seattle Center. This giant health clinic offers a full range of free dental, vision and medical care to under-served and vulnerable populations in the region. The effort, involving months of preparation and thousands of volunteers, transforms Key Arena into the largest clinic of its kind in Washington State. Over 4,000 patients are served by over 3,000 healthcare professionals and general support volunteers, providing more than $3.5 million in healthcare services.
How can you help? Volunteer at the clinic and join as many as 100 partner organizations to offer free dental, vision and medical care to under-served and vulnerable populations. Each day the Clinic needs over 750 healthcare professionals and general support volunteers to operate. The Clinic provides most equipment and supplies, as well as free meals and parking.
