Download Flyer (English/Spanish)

The Flying Doctors, “Los Medicos Voladores,” along with C.V. Medical Volunteers are returning to the eastern Coachella Valley to help residents in great need of medical and dental care.  The annual Oasis Flying Doctors health fair and resource fair will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 at Desert Mirage High School in Thermal, 86-150 66th Avenue.
Non- and under-insured residents are encouraged to come to this health fair and receive medical, dental, vision and other health services free of charge.  No appointment is needed, but services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Flying Doctors are medical volunteers from all over the United States who donate their services to areas of high medical need.  Twenty two years ago, they made their first visit to the Coachella Valley, an area where poverty and limited access to health services make the communities among the most underserved in the state.  Each year, the event has grown, with local doctors, dentists and resource agencies joining this humanitarian effort.
Care does not end at the health fair.  There is a comprehensive referral system for patients who need continued care.  Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo, along with other community health care providers, will help residents have a continuum of health services.
