CHARLESTON W.Va. — Remote Area Medical in partnership with West Virginia Health Right is bringing back free health care for weekend in southern West Virginia.

The clinic will take place next Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 20 and Oct. 21, at the Bible Center School in Charleston.

“Everyone is welcome,” West Virginia Health Right CEO Angie Settle said. “They don’t ask for ID, they don’t ask for insurance, they don’t ask where you live. Anybody in need who is willing to wait is welcome.”

RAM and West Virginia Health Right will operate the clinic at Bible Center School on 1111 Oakhurst Drive in Charleston. The doors open on Saturday for service will open around 6 a.m. and, according to Settle, anyone wanting care can begin to line up in the parking lot the evening before.

In a release by RAM, it states the lots for clinic usually open up no later than midnight on the first night of the event.

“We are going to be able to help about 1,000 people in two days which is amazing,” Settle said. “You get the same thing we do every day but the impact is much larger and faster.”

According to a RAM release, among the care being offered in Charleston is dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental x-rays, eye exams, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglasses made on-site, women’s health exams, and general medical exams.

All RAM services are FREE and no ID is required.

“There is no ulterior motive, we aren’t collecting data on people,” Settle said.

“It’s just an event to help people who may need glasses, eye exam, tooth pulled, teeth cleaning, need to be seen for a medical issue. This would be their opportunity to do so, totally free of charge.”
