1973 San Diego guide to community clinics

Mostly free

San Diego has a lot of good community clinics which have been formed because of a growing dissatisfaction with more expensive and inaccessible traditional health care systems. Each clinic is unique in an attempt to respond to the particular community, but all believe that health care is “a right, not a privilege.” Patients are encouraged to participate in their own health care by “learning about their bodies.” Donations of money, volunteer time, or usable items are encouraged.
