Remote Area Medical is holding a free clinic in Jefferson County for those in need of a free health, vision or dental check-up.
RAM is holding all-day clinics open to the public this weekend (Aug. 25 and 26) at the Strawberry Plains Presbyterian Church.
The patient parking lot will open no later than midnight and numbered tickets will be given out starting at 3 a.m. Saturday. Clinic doors open at 6 a.m. and patients will be admitted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
RAM said people should be prepared to choose between dental or vision services because of time constraints.
People were already lining up on Friday. One man said he's hoping for new dentures and says the care he's received at previous RAM clinics had been life-changing.
The East Tennessee foundations is also helping with the clinic. The next free RAM clinic is scheduled to happen in Fentress County as South Fentress Elementary School on the weekend of Sept. 8 and 9.
RAM is a non-profit volunteer organization that provides lifesaving medical services to people and pets in East Tennessee and across the world in times of need. People wishing to support the organization can do so at this link.
