A caregiver treats a patient at a CareNowLA event, coming to the L.A. Sports Arena Oct. 20 to Oct. 23, 2011.

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.

Dr. Michael R. Cousineau, associate professor of family medicine at the Keck School of Medicine at USC.
