KANSAS CITY — A free two-day health clinic in Kansas City this week provided care to about 2,300 people.

The National Association of Free Clinics said about 900 uninsured people attended the clinic on Wednesday and about 1,400 on Thursday.

The Kansas City Star reported that demand was so great that volunteers were arranging doctor appointments for people who were still waiting in line as the clinic was closing.

The clinic was the fourth in recent months organized by the National Association of Free Clinics. The association has received donations of about $1.9 million for the event and plans to hold more of them next year.
