Daly Merrill: Sierra Nevada Memorial joining effort in upcoming free medical clinic

Dr. Brian Evans, CEO of Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, met with us a few weeks ago about the planned free dental, vision, and medical clinic planned for Jan. 11-12 of 2020, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

United Way of Nevada County will be hosting the clinic. California CareForce will be providing the infrastructure. We expect to deliver care to the public free of cost for about 1,000 folks.

Thank you, Dr. Evans! And thanks to our local hospital and its staff for this help and all the other services you provide to this community.
