Remote Area Medical (RAM) — a nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free dental, vision and medical care to those in need – is seeking volunteer medical, dental and vision professionals and support staff for an upcoming medical clinic in Philadelphia.
The two-day clinic will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 1101 Arch St. on April 23-24. This clinic is in collaboration with the Sheriff’s Office of Philadelphia and DentMed. Interpreters and general support volunteers are also needed to help set-up and take-down the clinic.
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. Services include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental x-rays, eye exams, glaucoma testing, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglasses made on-site, women’s health exams, flu shots and general medical exams. Free take-home colon cancer screening test kits will also be available.
