Remote Area Medical (RAM) is hosting a Mobile Clinic in Chattanooga the weekend of June 3 and 4 at Red Bank High School. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis so no appointments are made. You will need to arrive early to receive a number to be seen. Numbers will be handed out starting at 3 a.m. June 3, 2017. The parking lot will open at 12 a.m.
Remote Area Medical provides medical care through mobile clinics in underserved, isolated, or impoverished communities. Most clinics provide general medical, dental, vision, preventive care, and education unless otherwise indicated such as veterinarian services.
Remote Area Medical’s mission to prevent pain and alleviate suffering is fueled by donors and volunteers who support the operation of mobile medical clinics that deliver free, high-quality vision, dental, and medical services to children, individuals, and families who do not have access or cannot afford a visit to a doctor. Since 1985, RAM’s Corps of more than 100,000 Humanitarian Volunteers, comprised of licensed dental, vision, veterinary, and medical professionals, have treated more than 700,000 individuals and 67,000 animals, delivering $112 million worth of free health care services.
While the end time says 2 p.m., each clinic's end time varies. 2 p.m. is a general guideline. Some clinics end later, some earlier.
