Our friends at Remote Area Medical (RAM) have released their initial schedule for 2011, so if you think you’ll be in need of some free medical, dental or veterinary care next year (and who of won’t be?), you can get a sneak peek of some of the places that Remote Area Medical will be visiting next year. Remote Area Medical’s clinics provide free medical, dental and vision care to the uninsured, underinsured, unemployed and anyone else who cannot pay for healthcare, both adults and children.
We can’t emphasize enough: If you are interested in receiving free healthcare at a Remote Area Medical event, plan on getting there early. During Remote Area Medical’s week-long free healthcare clinic in Los Angeles this spring, 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. Often, some supplies are only available until they run out.
