Annie Zhang

Remember Annie? She was the student that graduated from Thousand Oaks High School as the class valedictorian and then was accepted at Harvard University. In her 3rd year there, she applied for and was accepted into an internship program for future physicians. Harvard paid her to work 10 hours a week here at the Free Clinic during the summer to get experience in clinical medicine. She applied and was accepted again in her fourth year.

Following graduation, summa cum laude, she spent the next summer in London England studying. Then she chose to attend UCLA School of Medicine where she is expected to graduate in 2010. Annie is an accomplished violinist, singer and poet. She stopped by the Free Clinic tonight to pick-up a letter of assessment from me to be included in her application to be a Rhodes Scholar!

Simi Valley Town Center

Thanks to our friends at the Simi Valley Town Center it is now easier to donate to the Free Clinic. Simply toss your spare change in the Koi Pond on the West end of the Town Center near Macy’s. Once a month, the folks at the Town Center will gather the change along with items not claimed in the Lost-and-Found and donate them to the Free Clinic. Please try not to hit the Koi!

Dental Implant

On Friday Dr Kleiger placed a cap on the tooth of a patient in our Dental Program. The cap was made at the Simi Valley Adult School Dental Technology Program located next door to our Dental Clinic. It is a great example of volunteers from the community working together with the school and the Free Clinic for the betterment of the patient.
