TTN volunteers with RAM in Baltimore, MD.
October 12, 2017We were the eyeglass fashionistas. With hundreds of eyeglass frames on hand, the patient was examined, got a script and we helped them chose the right frame. They took the frame and script to the Vision van where the lenses were ground and installed. People could leave with a new pair of glasses in less than two hours. In addition, dental clinic, flu shots, haircuts, legal aid, housing aid, employment counseling were available. What a rewarding experience for us!!
On 10/12-13, Remote Area Medical clinic served 1234 patients for $640,192 in total value of care. We were happy to help such a worthwhile cause. Especially excited to meet Stan Brock, an amazing entrepreneur who founded RAM in 1985 after he was injured in Guyana. Former manager of the largest cattle ranch in Guyana, star of Wild Kingdom, actor, author, journalist, black belt and pilot, Stan has mobilized hundreds of thousands of volunteers and healthcare professionals to deliver hundreds of millions of dollars of free medical services.
