Homeless, jobless seeking more medical help

By Rachel DePompa 

RICHMOND, VA (NBC12) - More homeless and jobless in our area are seeking help with health care and medications. The Daily Planet's medical clinic is overflowing with new patients during these tough economic times. 

Doctors usually have 22,000 patient visits a year at the Daily Planet's health care for the homeless clinic. That number will almost certainly be even higher by January 1st.
