Free Medical Clinic Planned in October in West Virginia
A two-day free medical clinic for West Virginia flood victims and others in need is being planned this fall in Kanawha County.
Organizers announced the clinic Wednesday at a news conference in Charleston.
The clinic will be held Oct. 22 and 23 at Elkview Middle School.
It is being hosted by Charleston-based West Virginia Health Right, which provides free medical, dental and vision health services. Remote Area Medical, a nonprofit group based in Rockford, Tennessee, will run the clinic.
RAM says on its website that patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis and must choose between dental or vision services at the same visit.
Organizers say volunteers are being sought to assist at the clinic and food will be provided.
