“We’ve all read about the millions of uninsured,” said Don Manelli, president of CareNow USA. “Events like this put a face on the numbers. Until you see them in one building at one time, you really have no idea how bad it is.”
Based on the success of the L.A. event, Manelli said he has plans to expand the event to other states next year.
Quest Imaging Solutions provides all major brands of surgical c-arms (new and refurbished) and carries a large inventory for purchase or rent. With over 20 years in the medical equipment business we can help you fulfill your equipment needs
Dr. Natalie Nevins, whom volunteered as medical director at the event, said CareNowUSA’s efforts are important, but the ultimate goal is to be obsolete.
“We need a health care system that cares for all the people who live here, that does primary care in a way that is thoughtful and preventative so we aren’t dealing with advanced diseases because no one has had the time to educate the patients,” she said. “We have to start frontloading -- spending money and time on the frontend to not have it be expensive and time consuming on the backend.”
