RAM is in need of doctors and surgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and/or nurses, dentists and dental staff, dental surgeons, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other vision care professionals.
RAM is also searching for general support volunteers to help with setting up for the clinic and breaking it down afterward, as well as for interpreters.

All RAM services are free, and no ID is required. Free dental, vision, and medical services will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Services available at the RAM free clinic will include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental x-rays, eye exams, glaucoma testing, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglasses made on-site, women’s health exams, flu shots, and general medical exams. Free take-home colon cancer screening test kits will also be available.
