Just a reminder to our friends in Tennessee. The Remote Area Medical (RAM) mobile clinic will be visiting the Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee today and tomorrow, providing free medical, dental, vision care to the uninsured, underinsured, unemployed and anyone else who cannot pay for care, both adults and children.
The parking lot will open to patients at midnight before each clinic day. Numbers will be given out around 3:30 a.m. each day. Services begin at 6 a.m. each day – first come, first served.
This RAM clinic will also be offering veterinary care, free spay and neuter services. (Veterinary services will be offered first-come-first served based on income eligibility. For more information about qualifying for this service, please contact Jean Jolly.) Animals should be at least 4 months old and in good overall health. They should not have anything to eat for 12 hours before surgery (water is fine).
Veterinary services will be administered at the Schenck Center, adjacent to the Tex Turner Arena in the upper parking lot.
Services available include:
Dental – Cleanings, fillings, extractions
Vision – Free Eye Exam & Free Eyeglasses (as time and supplies permit)
Medical – General Medical, Women’s Health
If you are interested in receiving free healthcare at the RAM event at the Lincoln Memorial University, 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. Supplies like prescription eyeglasses are only available until they run out.
