Nonprofit mobile clinic offering free medical care June 22-23

Area residents have an opportunity to receive free medical care this weekend.
Remote Area Medical – a non-profit organization out of Rockford, Tennessee, provides mobile clinics delivering free dental, vision and medical care to under-served and uninsured individuals. RAM is coming to Selmer on Saturday and Sunday, June 22-23.
All services are free and no identification is required, but depending on the turnout for the event, not everyone may get to be seen by a healthcare provider.
The RAM clinic will be at McNairy Central High School, 493 High School Road, Selmer. The parking lot is currently scheduled to open no later than 12 a.m. on Saturday, June 22.
Ticket distribution typically begins at 3 a.m., and patients will be seen in chronological order according to their ticket number when clinic doors open at 6 a.m. This process repeats on Sunday, June 23.
Services available at the Selmer RAM clinic include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental x-rays, eye exams, eyeglass prescriptions, free eyeglasses, women’s health exams and general medical exams.
“People can’t reach their full potential if they are dealing with pain,” said RAM CEO Jeff Eastman. “We have the ability and will to help them, so that’s what we’ll do.”
RAM is still in need of additional vision and dental professionals to volunteer their time and skills in Selmer. Dental providers who are licensed in Tennessee are now eligible to receive continuing education units for volunteering at RAM clinics.
