Nevada County residents in need of basic medical care will soon have a chance to see a medical professional for free. United Way of Nevada County is hosting a California CareForce (CCF) health clinic on January 11th and 12th at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. The 2-day clinic will will provide up to 1,000 attendees with free dental, eye, and medical exams and subsequent basic dental work and vision correction with glasses.
You MUST have a wristband to receive clinic services. You can pick up a wristband at the Nevada County Fairgrounds the day before you want to be seen.
To be seen on Saturday: pick up a wristband on Friday from 4:00 pm-6:00 pm
To be seen on Sunday: pick up a wristband on Saturday from 4:00 pm-6:00 pm
The Nevada County Fairgrounds is at 11228 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley. Enter through Gate 4 and go through the main parking lot to Gate 5.
Veterans and active members of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserve and their families will receive priority entrance to the clinic, beginning at 7:00 am on each clinic day. Veterans do NOT have to wait in line for a wristband the day before and can receive services on the same day they visit the clinic. Look for the “Veterans Line Starts Here” sign when you arrive and provide a copy of your DD-214 or military, reserve or VA ID card or California driver’s license/ID card that has the military designation. Service is not limited to those with an honorable discharge status.
The clinic is still in need of medical professionals to volunteer their time. There is also a need for volunteers to help set up and tear down. Anyone interested in volunteering is encouraged to call California CareForce at 916-749-4170 or visit CaliforniaCareforce.org.
