Note: Eve is in Kansas City today, helping out and talking to folks at the free health care clinic organized by the National Association of Free Clinics with funding raised in large part by MSNBC's Keith Olbermann. MSNBC will be streaming their own video from KC starting at noon EST; Eve has more video of her own after the jump. If you need help finding affordable medical assistance in your area, NAFC has this directory of free clinics.]
