Sri Sathya Sai Baba Free Medical & Dental Clinic
The Sri Sathya Sai Baba Free Medical and Dental Clinic (SSSBFM&DC) has been in operation since May 1, 2010 and have successfully completed over two years of loving service by providing free healthcare to the impoverished in the Los Angeles area, without regard to race, gender, age, nationality or religion. With our hearts filled with love, we thank Sathya Sai Baba for giving us this wonderful opportunity to lovingly serve many patients who neither have medical insurance nor can afford to see a Doctor.
At present, we have 19 Providers and 40 paramedical and general Volunteers serving at the clinic. The SSSBFM&DC was inaugurated on May 1, 2010 in collaboration with the Venice Family Clinic (VFC). On completion of two years of service, the Board of Directors of the clinic invited the CEO and the Medical Director of the Venice Family Clinic for a Luncheon meeting to review the services offered during the past two years and to discuss the need for any improvements or additions to the services offered. On behalf of the VFC, Ms. Elizabeth Forer, CEO, expressed their gratitude to Sathya Sai Baba and all providers, paramedical staff and volunteers who serve at the Clinic for their humble services offered on Saturdays. This was reiterated by Dr. Karen Lamp, Medical Director of the VFC.
