Urban Indian health center opens doors in Fresno
The estimated 13,000 urban Indians in Fresno, California, once again have a place to obtain health care services.

The Fresno American Indian Health Project opened six months ago. It replaces a void left by the closure of the Fresno Native American Health Center, which lost all of its Indian Health Service funds in January 2007.

United American Indian Involvement Inc of Los Angeles stepped in and accepted a contract with IHS. The Fresno center has since signed up about 100 people for services. The goal is to register 3,000.
