The history of the Free Clinic Project at UCI has been filled with hard work by its members, volunteers and especially the directors and doctors that were willing to help out and make this project become a reality.
Former undergraduate president Wei Kuo brought his idea to life of a new Free Clinic to serve the underserved community. With the help of the original board members and the Chair of Public Health, Dr. Ogunseitan--who joined as a faculty adviser for the team. The idea quickly gained attention from the school and was endorsed by UCI's student body council, ASUCI.
In the Fall of 2014, the first Medical Student Board was created, and is still operating with medical students from the University of California, Irvine Medical School and Western University of Health Sciences.The first location opened in Garden Grove in the winter of 2014.
In August 2016, The Free Clinic Project at UCI received non-profit status.
The clinic currently operates as the An Lành Free Clinic, by undergraduate students in the organization, the Free Clinic Project at UCI. The An Lành Free Clinic is a current satellite clinic of Lestonnac Free Clinic.
