In a time when health care services are limited, people living below the poverty line are suffering the greatest consequences, they are more likely to suffer from chronic diseases and a live shorter lifespan. The purpose of this project was to design an Urgent Care Clinic that provides comprehensive health services for the low-income residents of Southeast Los Angeles. The goal of this project was to create a grant proposal and identify potential funding sources to create and operate a non-profit Urgent Care Clinic. The proposed program would help eliminate the health discrepancies by offering free and low-cost health care services in a community with limited resources.
An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the best way to help eliminate the discrepancies in access to health care among the working poor and minorities. A search was also conducted to locate appropriate funding that would support this project.
