RAM is non-profit provider of mobile medical clinics that provide free healthcare to those in need. This weekend dentists and physicians will be available along with hearing aids and glasses for this who cannot afford them.

SVRMC’s Chief Nursing Officer, Linda Burnette has been on the front lines planning the RAM event and says, “It is important to remember there are people who cannot afford basic healthcare.” Staff from Emporia, Colonial Heights and Petersburg are donating their skills, the use of wheelchairs, disposable sheets, patient supply bags and providing the locations needed for follow-up calls from the physician about a person’s lab results.
