Roane County residents in need of free medical, dental and vision services are encouraged to attend a Remote Area Medical clinic Sept. 21-22 in Clinton First Baptist Church at 225 N. Main St.
The clinic is supported by volunteers and donations. No identification required, and translation services will be available on site to help with patient registration.
Free services include:
• Medical — General medical support and diabetes testing.
• Vision — Vision testing and diagnoses; glasses will be prescribed and made onsite at the clinic as time and supplies permit.
• Dental — Extractions, fillings, cleaning and general oral hygiene services will be provided. (Patients will choose one of these dental services).
Services will be provided to patients on a first-come, first-served basis. No one can be guaranteed service at the clinic.
Patients will be permitted to begin arriving the evening of Sept. 20 to establish their place in line. The church parking lot will be open to patients at midnight Sept. 21-22.
Volunteers from the Tennessee State Guard will direct parking; patients will be able to wait in their cars until the clinic opens.
Numbers will be distributed to waiting patients at 3 p.m. Sept. 21-22.
Beginning at 6 a.m., patients will be called by number to enter the registration area.
RAM volunteers, including Anderson County host committee members, will handle all patient registration procedures, distribution of numbers and provision of services. This is the same process followed by all RAM clinics.
Patients interested in attending the clinic should line up at the church.
Parking for patients will be in the large city parking lot located next door to the church. Patient parking will be clearly marked with signs.
