RAM will be set up at the Coalfield High School, located at 1720 Coal Hill Road, Coalfield, TN 37719 for one day only.
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.

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.
