Remote Area Medical (RAM) To Bring Free Medical, Dental, Vision Clinic to Tennessee, Nov. 3-4

Just a reminder to our friends in South Tennessee. The Remote Area Medical (RAM) mobile clinic will be visiting Byrdstown, Tennessee on November 3rd and 4th, providing free medical, dental and vision care to the uninsured, underinsured, unemployed and anyone else who cannot pay for care, both adults and children. The clinic will be at Pickett County K-8, 1016 Woodlawn Drive, Byrdstown, TN 38549.

Lines can be long and start early in the morning; numbers will be given out between 12 Midnight and 3:30 AM each day prior to the clinic opening. The clinic opens at 6 AM EDT, and patients are seen on a first come, first served basis. For the best chance of being seen, plan to arrive early in the evening before the day you wish to receive treatment. Be prepared for rain and cool weather and bring snacks. Once registered, be prepared for long waits before being seen by a doctor.

We can’t emphasize enough: If you are interested in receiving free healthcare at the RAM event, plan to get there early. During RAM‘s week-long free healthcare clinic in Los Angeles last year, thousands lined up for days in advance in order to receive free medical treatment. Volunteers were able to treat 7,000 patients, many of whom had lost their jobs and their health insurance in the economic downturn. Some supplies are only available until they run out.

Are you planning on attending one of RAM’s clinics this year? Tell us about it in our discussion forum!
