Free dental, vision and medical care will be provided in Hazard on a first-come, first-served basis on the second weekend in June.
The clinic will open at 6 a.m. Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12 at East Perry Elementary School at 301 Perry Circle Rd. in Hazard. The clinic’s closing time may vary, based on the service area’s daily capacity.
All of the services are free and no identification is required, but patients will be required to wear a face covering and must undergo a Covid-19 screening before entering the clinic. Patients are also asked to bring a list of their medications, or pictures of the bottles with the label visible, and to take their medications on the morning of the clinic as directed.
The patient parking lot will open no later than midnight on Friday night, June 10, and remain open for the duration of the clinic. Once in the parking lot, additional information will be provided regarding next steps.
RAM encourages everyone who would like services, especially dental services, to arrive as early as possible.
The clinic is sponsored by Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps, a nonprofit provider of free pop-up health clinics, and the Hazard-based University of Kentucky Center for Excellence in Rural Health.
