RAM needing volunteers for free, 2-day healthcare clinic in Sparta


 Remote Area Medical – RAM – a major nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free, quality dental, vision and medical care to those in need – is seeking volunteer medical, dental and vision professionals and general support staff for its Oct. 21-22 clinic. The two-day clinic is to be held at White County High School, located at 267 Allen Drive, Sparta, TN 38583. This clinic is in collaboration with the Bon Air Mountain Community Church.

RAM is also in need of general support volunteers to help set up on Friday, Oct. 20 and take down on Sunday, Oct. 22. Overnight parking staff to greet patients is also needed, and interpreters can volunteer to aid patients through the process, either in the parking lot or during clinic operations. Individuals do not need to work in the medical field to volunteer as general support. If you or your organization would like to volunteer your time to help provide free healthcare services to the Sparta, Tenn. and surrounding communities, please visit our website at www.ramusa.org or call us at 865-579-1530.

All RAM services are free, and no ID is required. Free dental, vision and medical services will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Services available at a RAM free clinic include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental X- rays, eye exams, eye health screenings, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglasses made on-site, women’s health exams and general medical exams.
