Free kids' ortho-clinic planned

Arizona Daily Star Tucson, Arizona

Children in Tucson with orthopedic problems are invited to a free outreach clinic sponsored by Shriners Hospitals for Children-Los Angeles Saturday. Nov.7, 09

The clinic will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Square & Compass Children's Clinic, 2600 N. Wyatt Drive, on the Tucson Medical Center campus.

Two L.A.-based doctors will be at the clinic to provide free, specialized screenings and routine follow-ups to children in need.

The only documentation required is a birth certificate and an immunization record, said Dick MIller, chairman of the hospital committee for the local Sabbar Shrine Temple.

Parents who think their children may be eligible for specialized care are invited to stop by the local temple at 450 S. Tucson Blvd. or call Miller at 624-2509.
Miller said the local clinic will serve children from both the United States and Mexico. He said some of the common problems the Shriners help with are club feet and spina bifida.

Shriners Hospitals for Children is an international health-care system composed of 22 hospitals nationwide providing free, specialized care for children under 18 years old.
