Updated Mar 2023
Remote Area Medical (RAM) is a major nonprofit provider of free pop-up clinics. Their mission is to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by providing free, quality healthcare to those in need. They do this by delivering free dental, vision and medical services to underserved and uninsured individuals. Since RAM was founded in 1985, over 196,000 volunteers – comprised of professional practitioners, as well as general support staff – have treated more than 900,000 individuals delivering more than $189.5 million worth of free healthcare services.

Here in Cleveland, Tennessee, the Two-Day RAM clinic took place in the St Therese Catholic Church School. It takes 18 month to organize a such a clinic, and RAM does 60 per year in the USA. They open at 6 am and close at 6 pm or until the parking lot is empty. It is on a first come first serve basis and people attending the clinic often sleep in their cars to secure a visit the following day.
