In an article from the People’s Health Clinic’s website, Worel stressed that the clinic is still necessary even with the Affordable Care Act having gone into effect.

"The People’s Health Clinic has been an important safety net to uninsured residents of Summit and Wasatch Counties since 1999 and will continue to provide high quality care to the uninsured."

The People’s Health Clinic had 9,500 visits in 2013. For more information, visit
