Knoxville RAM Clinic to Provide Free Dental, Vision, Medical Care

Remote Area Medical is hosting a free RAM clinic in Knoxville to provide dental, vision and medical care to people who do not have access or cannot afford those health services.

The free RAM clinic will be held Feb. 4-5, 2017 at the Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park located at 3301 East Magnolia Avenue in Knoxville.

The parking lot at Chilhowee Park will open at 9 p.m. on Friday night for patients to assemble and RAM clinic volunteers will begin dispersing numbered tickets at 3 a.m. on each Saturday and Sunday morning. Patients seeking care must be physically present in line to receive a number. The quantity of numbers handed out depends upon the number of volunteer staff available. Clinic doors open at 6 a.m. and staff will see patients on a first come, first served basis. No appointments can be made.
