FREE Medical, Dental/Vision Clinic in Ft. Lauderdale
Remote Area Medical is a charitable organization that offers excellent quality, free medical care in clinics throughout the United States and around the world. On March 6-7, 2021, RAM will hold a pop-up clinic offering medical, dental, and vision care in Ft. Lauderdale at Joseph Carter Park, at 1450 W. Sunrise Blvd. Ft. Lauderdale 33311.
Remote Area Medical (RAM) is a major nonprofit provider of free pop-up clinics. Our mission is to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by providing free, quality healthcare to those in need. We do this by delivering free dental, vision, and medical services to underserved and uninsured individuals. RAM’s Corps of more than 155,000 volunteers – licensed dental, vision, medical, and veterinary professional – have treated more than 835,000 individuals delivering more than $150 million worth of free care in the United States and around the world.
The basic services can include: DENTAL: Cleaning, fillings, extractions, VISION: Complete dilated eye exams, testing for glaucoma, testing for diabetic retinopathy, glasses made on site, and MEDICAL: General medicine
The patient parking lot will open no later than 12:01 a.m. (midnight) on the first night of the event, March 5, 2021. As patients arrive at the parking lot, they will be provided with additional information regarding clinic opening processes and next steps. Clinic doors typically open at 6 a.m. This process will repeat throughout the clinic days.
Free dental, vision, and medical services are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. Due to time constraints, patients should be prepared to choose between DENTAL and VISION services. Medical services are offered to every patient attending the clinic. No ID is required, but patients should bring any medication they are now taking.
Patients will be required to wear a face covering and must undergo a COVID-19 screening before entering the clinic. All services are free and open to the public. No ID required.
In some situations, such as inclement weather, volunteer cancellations, or other circumstances outside of RAM’s control, the parking lot may open earlier, or a smaller number of patients may be served. RAM encourages everyone who would like services, especially dental services, to arrive as early as possible.
* Clinic closing time may vary based on each service area’s daily capacity.
