Free Clinic 

  The National Association of Free Clinics (NAFC) and MSNBC's The Ed Show will present a free health clinic for the uninsured from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 29, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (900 Convention Center Blvd.). It is the third free clinic NAFC has hosted in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. The Ed Show will broadcast from the clinic, which MSNBC helped raise money to fund.

  People do not have to be ill to attend the clinic; it is for people who have not seen a doctor recently and need primary care. The Kaiser Family Foundation has reported Louisiana has the country's 10th highest rate of uninsured residents who are not elderly. The foundation says more than one in five Louisianans lack health insurance.

  To schedule an appointment at the clinic, call (877) 236-7617 or visit www.regonline.com/2011NOLACARE
