Free Health Screening Clinic
COUGH COOL | Has talking about the shutdown gotten stale yet? Good, let’s talk about health care. As citizens begin to navigate the Affordable Care Act, those who have gone without for years might need a reminder of what it’s like to see a doctor. Right in the heart of Portland, the First Parish Church of Portland hosts a (nondenominational) FREE HEALTH SCREENING CLINIC from 3 to 5 pm, followed by a community dinner and public discussion forum on the notion that “HEALTH CARE IS A HUMAN RIGHT,” the opposition to which some people still somehow believe is a bedrock of this country. Again, free, at 425 Congress St.
with 5 pm dinner & 6 pm forum discussion
