Charity clinics cropping up to serve Dallas-area immigrant workers

Dallas Morning News, July 15, 2008
In the last decade, there's been a tenfold increase in the number of charity clinics in the Dallas area identified by an association formed by the Dallas County Medical Society. The clinics, now numbering more than 40, are among the only option for growing numbers of people without health insurance, especially illegal immigrants who are fearful to use government-affiliated clinics or hospitals. The growth in charity clinics "really shows the alarming situation in our community of the uninsured growing," said Connie Webster, community health director for the Dallas County Medical Society.
