Church hosts medical clinic for hurricane evacuees

- Hurricane Harvey victims got some medical attention with the help of a North Texas church.

The Dallas First Church of Seventh Day Adventists in Oak Lawn started planning a free medical clinic around February. As soon as Harvey hit, they knew who needed help the most.

The Adventist Medical Evangelism Network provides doctors for these events around the world. There were more than 600 volunteers at the North Texas event Sunday.

"Most of our security and parking and all that are just volunteers. I noticed over here to the right you had some footage of an assistant. That's actually our pastor's wife. She's a nurse but she's being a dental assistant today so everybody's kind of doing whatever needs to be done,” said Malcolm Cole, the logistics coordinator for the clinic.

Evacuees were picked up from the mega shelter at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center to visit the clinic.
