Organizers of last weekend’s Remote Area Medical Expedition at Clinton’s First Baptist Church said the event was a huge success.
During the two-day clinic, medical, dental, and vision services estimated at more than $504,000 were provided to patients at no charge. Organizers said the vast majority of the services provided were in the dental clinic to the tune of $413,505, including one patient who received more than $8,000 in dental care.
In the vision clinic, $83,030 worth of services were provided. Another $7,634 worth of general medical services were also provided.
In all, more than 980 patients registered and 953 received treatment. Organizers of the RAM Clinic wanted to once again express their gratitude for the community support they received, including prayers, donations of goods and money, as well as time spent working by volunteers.
