COS Demos Mobile Medical Clinic

Mobile Clinic

MMA's Mobile Clinic

Christ Our Savior Anglican Church, in conjunction with Anglican Health Ministries and the  Torrance Outreach for Unified Community Health (TOUCH) Coalition,  demonstrated  Medical Mission Adventures’ (MMA)  mobile medical clinic for Torrance Memorial Medical Center (TMMC) on Friday, November 11, 2011. In attendance were representatives from the community, including the Salvation Army, Torrance Corps.

 

Mr. Louie Rosado, President of MMA and Dr. Finnell, Executive Director of Anglican Health Ministries and founder of TOUCH, made a presentation to the executive staff of TMMC followed by a clinic walkthrough. All of the clinic’s capabilities were on display (i.e. medical, dental, and optical). The presentation focused on the need for primary medical care services among the area’s uninsured and underinsured population and how community organizations can network together to enhance continuity of care and reduce uncompensated emergency department visits.

 

During the free clinic visits, the Christian staff witnesses to patients and shares the gospel. AHM and MMA both believe that we can best minister to people through  words and loving actions. The clinic is also a unique way to bring community assets together to address long-term needs in Torrance.

TOUCH and MMA will work with TMMC and other community organizations in the coming weeks to establish a corps of volunteers to host the free clinic on a regular basis in Torrance. If you would like to be part of this effort, please join the Coalition.
