We designed it in a sense where we create a 'wow' experience for the patient. Every patient who comes into our mobile [clinic] can feel the 'wow' experience.
Steven Voon, Tzu Chi Mobile Clinic Executive Director
I wasn’t a real good student. I wasn’t real diligent. But I would always go to the guitar…It was like my sanctuary.
Marcos Loya, Los Angeles Resident
I feel better because my left eye is not blurry. And I can see that I’m gaining…to see how far I can see. So I can see a little bit farther now.
Davion Fleming, San Bernardino Resident
We used to use a beach chair as the dentist and patient chair. Now, we have a fully functioning clinic that's able to go to remote areas.
Steven Voon, Tzu Chi Mobile Clinic Executive Director
Tzu Chi gave me one of the biggest gifts of all, which was the teeth I’m able to smile with now. I remember driving home with the rear view mirror on the car pointed right back at my face so I could see that lovely smile the whole way home.
Gary Metzger, East San Gabriel Homeless Coalition

About Our Mobile Clinics

The Tzu Chi Medical Foundation’s mobile clinics bring more than 16 years of experience delivering free mobile vision, medical, dental and cancer screening services. Mobile units are fully staffed by volunteers and are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and supplies to provide high-quality preventive and restorative dental care, eye examinations and prescription glasses, medical consultations, cancer screenings and health education services. Our routine mobile events also make follow-ups and regular check-ups possible. They specifically aim to offer quality care to the uninsured and underinsured, including those who are low-income, homeless, senior and migrant workers, as well as those we welcome on-site at schools, churches and allied health and human services agencies. We also partake in large-scale multi-day community events, including health fairs, and host our own medical outreaches across the country.

Embedded in all of our services is a focus on improving the overall health of local residents who face language and culture barriers through preventive health education, healthy nutrition and dietary advice, promoting physical exercise and adopting healthy lifestyles. We sponsor dialysis support groups, diabetes and chronic disease management programs, healthy lifestyle workshops, exercise classes, stress management classes and walking groups.

Unmet eye and vision care needs can significantly impair learning, job performance, employment opportunities and home safety. Tzu Chi vision mobile professionals are dedicated to helping underserved patients and local residents reach their maximum potential by offering on-going free or low-cost vision care. Our vision mobile clinics have exam rooms, optometric equipment and phoropters to check prescriptions and screen for eye diseases. With optical grinding machines, patients can also receive new glasses for free.  Services: Vision screenings, ophthalmology, free prescription glasses

Partnering with ZERO—The End of Prostate Cancer, American Cancer Society and Sun Clinical Laboratory, Tzu Chi Medical Foundation launched its ZERO Cancer Mobile Clinic in 2016. We provide free Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) tests for men at high risk of prostate cancer, improving their chances of survival by early detection. Over 400 high-risk men from various areas have undergone our PSA test, and we hope to continue providing this crucial service to the Los Angeles communities.  Services: PSA testing

The Fresno medical team held its first clinic event in 2001 and officially joined Tzu Chi International Medical Association (TIMA) in April 2003. We hold a monthly, free medical outreach and weekly mobile clinics (every Tuesday) to serve the underprivileged population of Central Valley.

Our services include blood pressure testing, blood sugar testing, adult medicine, pediatrics, dental care, acupuncture, chiropractics, vision care, and even haircuts.
