This morning the L.A. Sports Arena is serving as a massive, makeshift doctors' office. Thousands of uninsured and under-insured people are expected to get eye exams, teeth cleanings and other health services as part of the three-day free clinic. The clinic is organized by a group called CareNowLA. It's their fourth event in Southern California.
