A recent episode by “60 Minutes” highlighted the charity “Remote Area Medical” (RAM) which brings medical personnel to areas that have limited access. Some patients drove 200 miles to reach this clinic which provides both doctor and dentist service. All in all, “[RAM] treated 17,000 patients” last year.
In their recent event in Knoxville, TN, “RAM saw 920 patients, made 500 pairs of glasses, did 94 mammograms, extracted 1,066 teeth and did 567 fillings.”
