“What is RAM Oklahoma?”
Remote Area Medical (RAM) Oklahoma is a free healthcare weekend for those in need of care they cannot afford. It’s made possible by volunteer medical, dental and vision professionals, general volunteers and sponsors. We will treat as many patients on a first-come first-served basis as we can, based on the number of volunteers we have. Our goal is to serve 1,500 patients during the weekend.
“What services will be provided?”
Patients will have the ability to choose either dental, vision, physician or women’s services care. Dental patients can receive cleanings, fillings or extractions. Vision patients will receive an eye examination and will have a pair of glasses made on site, if prescribed. A limited number of mammograms and Pap tests will be offered to women. General physicians will be able to conduct physicals and run a limited number of lab tests, if necessary
“What time do I need to get in line?”
Volunteers will begin providing care at 6 a.m. each day, but you must have a patient number to receive care. We will begin passing out patient numbers after 3 a.m. (Once you receive a number, you cannot leave the area without forfeiting that number.)
