Families without health insurance can get their medical needs addressed Saturday at the Flying Doctors health fair in Thermal, where the clinic has been held annually in the Coachella Valley for more than two decades.

The free health fair will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Desert Mirage High School, 86150 Ave. 66.

Typically hundreds attend the clinic, including some who line up overnight. Services provided include child care, mammograms, chiropractic services, anemia tests, diabetes screenings, dental services and vision checkups.

While the clinic is intended to serve those without proper insurance, health insurance enrollment assistance is also an offered service at Saturday’s fair. A free lunch will also be offered.

Those planning to attend are encouraged to come early, as services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information, contact Lucy Moreno at (760) 398-5229 or at luzm@cdsdp.org .
