WASHINGTON COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — A major nonprofit organization is preparing to take care of thousands of people around southwest Virginia during a free health clinic this weekend.

According to Remote Area Medical (RAM) Volunteer Corps, this free pop-up clinic will provide medical, dental, and vision services on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22 at Emory & Henry College. The clinic doors typically open at 6 a.m., but the closing time may vary based on daily capacity.

Organizers say the patient parking lot will open by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 20. As patients arrive in the parking lot, they will receive additional information about the clinic opening processes and next steps.

Patients are asked to be prepared with their owner food, water, medicines, and clothing when arriving early. However, bathrooms will be provided.

RAM says all services are free and offered on a first-come, first-served basis — although you should be prepared to choose either medical and dental services or medical and vision services due to time constraints. No ID is required, but you will need to wear a face covering and undergo a COVID-19 screening before entering the clinic.

While the clinic will be set up near Emory, people from as far away as Roanoke and the Shenandoah Valley are expected to go there to receive vital services.

The RAM clinic coordinator, Kim Faulkinbury, joined “WFXR News at Noon” to share additional details about the event.
