Wilson’s Wife, Welfare Head Will Visit Clinic
California’s first lady and the head of the state’s Health and Welfare Agency will tour a school clinic today in Costa Mesa, where needy families can get help through the state’s Healthy Start program.
Gayle Wilson and HWA Secretary Sandra R. Smoley will visit the clinic at 601 Hamilton St., where students and their families can get tutoring, health screenings, dental and eye exams and immunizations under the program begun in 1991.
The pair will speak at 11 a.m. and help hand over checks to more than 40 charitable groups in Orange and Los Angeles counties from the PacifiCare Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Santa Ana-based health maintenance organization.
The tour of the Healthy Start program begins at 10:30 a.m., at the Rea 5th and 6th Grade Center. Information: (714) 760-3382.
