FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: April 1, 2009 Laura Carlile (423)881-5182 (day) (931)261-9222 (eve) 423-881-5292 (fax) Free Dental and Vision Care Services Remote Area Medical® Clinic comes to Van Buren County WHAT: The Van Buren County Head Start Multi-services Advisory Council is hosting a Remote Area Medical® Clinic (R.A.M.) in order to provide free dental and vision services to occupants of Van Buren County and surrounding counties. WHY: With the rising costs of medical care and medical insurance, many families and individuals in our community currently have no medical coverage. Those who possess insurance often have little or no dental or vision coverage. The Remote Area Medical® Clinic will provide free medical services that are otherwise unavailable to the residents of our communities. Doctors, dentists and other professionals volunteer their time and even pay their own way to provide access to care for anyone who needs it. Patients are treated on a first come, first served basis - no income test, no proof of insurance, no questions asked. WHERE: Van Buren County High School Gymnasium, Spencer TN WHEN: Saturday, April 18, 2009, 6am; Sunday, April 19, 2009, 6am HOW: Services provided include: dental cleanings, fillings, fluoride treatments and extractions and vision examinations and glasses. People will be issued numbered tickets to receive services. Come Friday or Saturday night at 8:00pm to get your ticket! Early arrival will be turned away until 8pm! The clinic is open to anyone, no matter where you live. Large crowds are anticipated! Bring your own snacks and food. WHO: This event has been organized by the Multi-Service Advisory Council of the Van Buren County Head Start. Many community partners are involved including: the sheriff’s department, local fire departments, Fall Creek Falls State Park, the school system, county government, the health department and many local businesses and churches. UCHRA's mission is to promote a strong sense of community and family values by administering programs designed to provide tools, knowledge and resources to improve the quality of life, promote a positive sense of individual self-worth, encourage responsible decision making and provide opportunities for individuals to become productive and independent while giving first priority to the elderly, handicapped and severely economically disadvantaged.
