EUGENE, Ore. – Life and Health Network hosted a free health care event at the Lane Events Center on Saturday. The event will continue on Sunday.

At the event, those in need will be able to receive free blood pressure screenings, consultations with medical doctors, free dental exams, cleanings, fillings, and extractions. People can also get free eye exams and prescription eyeglasses.

None of the services require any form of payment or health insurance.

“We've just had people saying that it’s either rent or getting their teeth fixed,” said Danny Kwon, the executive director of Life and Health Network. “They're just living with pain, so a lot of people are grateful.”

Organizers said they served about 250 people on Saturday.

The event will start at 9 a.m. on Sunday.
