Families who are uninsured or under-insured can get free health care in Fresno this Sunday.

Saturday was the first of a two day health fair at Sunnyside High School. Dozens of doctors and specialists are offering everything from immunizations to vision and breast cancer screening.

You can also get free teeth cleaning and other dental work as well as free prescription glasses.

Organizers say they provide these clinics on a smaller scale at the Mosqueda Center once a month, but they wanted to reach out to more families who might otherwise go without basic health care.

Steven Voon, medical outreach coordinator said, "We know that Fresno citizens have a big population with no insurance, we try to meet that need in Fresno."

The healthy fair continues at Sunnyside High School on Sunday. Registration starts at 7 a.m., and the clinic runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
