RAM Set for Free 2-day Clinic in Columbia

Free dental, vision and medical services set for July 8 - 9 at the E.A. Cox Middle School.

Remote Area Medical (RAM) – a nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free, quality dental, vision and medical care to those in need – will hold a free, two-day clinic on July 8 – 9. RAM will be set up at the E.A. Cox Middle School (located at 633 Bear Creek Pike, Columbia) for two days only.

All RAM services are free, and no ID is required. Free dental, vision and medical services will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The patient parking lot will open no later than 11:59 p.m. (midnight) on Friday night, July 7, and remain open for the duration of the clinic. Once in the parking lot, additional information regarding clinic-opening processes and next steps will be provided. Clinic doors open at 6 a.m.

Due to time constraints, patients should be prepared to choose between dental and vision services. Medical services are offered, in addition to dental or vision services, free to every patient attending the clinic.

Services available at the free RAM clinic include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental X-rays, eye exams, eye health exams, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglasses made on-site, women’s health examsΒ and general medical exams.

In some situations outside of RAM’s control, such as inclement weather, volunteer cancellations or other circumstances, the parking lot may open earlier or a smaller number of patients may be served. RAM encourages everyone who would like services, especially dental services, to arrive as early as possible. Clinic closing time may vary based on each service area’s daily capacity. For more information, please see RAM’s FAQ page.

For more information, to donate or to volunteer, please visit ramusa.org or call 865-579-1530. Patients may also visit the Facebook Event for this clinic at fb.me/e/2MkyfWpLh.
