Remote Area Medical (RAM) will hold a free, two-day medical, dental, and vision clinic in Dallas from December 3–4.
In collaboration with The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, RAM will conduct the pop-up clinic at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas.
RAM is a nonprofit provider of pop-up medical clinics providing free dental, vision, and medical care services. Since 2019, the company has held pop-up clinics across the nation and abroad, such as in Tennessee, Texas, California, Colorado, Guyana, Haiti, and the Philippines.
Services are provided by licensed medical, dental, and vision professionals, as well as support staff.
Founded in 1985, the organization continues the mission of its late founder, Stan Brock, who passed away in 2018.
“Never forget the mission,” said Brock, which is “to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by providing free, quality healthcare to those in need.”
RAM has since provided aid to over 888,000 individuals.
This weekend’s pop-up clinic will provide services such as dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, and dental X-rays. For the eyes, there will be eye exams, glaucoma testing, eyeglass prescriptions, and eyeglasses made on-site.
Women’s health exams and general medical exams will also be offered.
Participants can also participate in a gait clinic and receive HIV testing. Volunteers will provide take-home colon cancer screening test kits, as well.
All services will be free, with no need for an ID. Patients should be prepared to choose between vision and dental services and undergo a COVID-19 CDC question screening before being allowed to enter the clinic.
Services will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
