LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11 / CNS) - Free medical and dental services will be available beginning Wednesday at the Los Angeles Convention Center for uninsured and under-insured residents.
Thousands of healthcare professionals and volunteers will take part in the no-cost clinic, offering services on a first-come, first-served basis from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Thursday, and from 7 a.m. to noon Friday.

Specialists in podiatry, immunizations, root canals, pharmacy, eyeglass fittings and examinations, and STD screenings will also be on hand.
