East Ridge, TNRemote Area Medical (RAM) is set to make a significant impact on the healthcare landscape of East Ridge with its upcoming free two-day healthcare clinic, scheduled for September 9th-10th. This compassionate initiative aims to provide much-needed medical, dental, and vision services to those in need.

The RAM Clinic will take place at the Camp Jordan Arena, conveniently located at 323 Camp Jordan Parkway in East Ridge. Doors to the clinic will open promptly at 6:00 am each day, and services will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so early arrival is encouraged.

Patients looking to take advantage of this vital healthcare opportunity should plan to visit the patient parking lot, which will open no later than 11:59 pm (midnight) on Friday night, September 8th, and will remain accessible throughout the duration of the clinic. Once in the parking lot, patients will receive additional instructions about clinic-opening procedures and next steps.

RAM Clinic attendees will have the option to choose between dental and vision services due to time constraints. However, it’s worth noting that medical services are also offered free of charge to every patient attending the clinic.

This endeavor is not only a lifeline for those in the East Ridge area but also an opportunity for individuals to contribute.

Those interested in donating or volunteering can find more information on the Remote Area Medical website or by calling 865-579-1530.

Additionally, the Facebook Event Page for this clinic offers another avenue for patients and volunteers to connect and stay updated.

In a world where access to healthcare can be a challenge for many, RAM’s free clinic in East Ridge stands as a beacon of hope, a testament to the power of community, and a reminder that healthcare is a fundamental right that should be available to all.
