Pop-Up Clinic to Provide Free Dental, Vision and Medical Services in Silver Springs

Posted: Updated:

Remote Area Medical (RAM), an organization that provides free health care services, is bringing a pop-up clinic for both adults and children to rural Silver Springs, Nevada.

The clinic will be located at the Silver Stage High School at 3755 West Spruce Avenue, Silver Springs on September 23rd, 24th and 25th, 2016.

There are no eligibility requirements and no identification is necessary. Services are provided on a first come, first saved basis. Entry numbers will be distributed at 3am, three hours before the clinic opens. RAM says that people should come prepared to stay on-site by bringing warm clothing, snacks and water if possible. Portable toilets will be available.

Parents and guardians of minors must be present to give consent for services, and patients are asked to bring a list of any medications they are currently taking.

Free services include dental cleanings, fillings, and extractions, eye exams and glasses, vaccinations for adults and children (including the zoster vaccination to prevent shingles in adults 55 and older), mental health screenings and referrals, general medical consultations, and referrals and connections to local follow-up care. 

If you area interested in volunteering at this event, you can register online at https://healthycomm.org/volunteer. Although several optometrists and physicians and students and an instructor from Truckee Meadows Community College Dental Hygiene Program are already registered to volunteer, dentists, nurses and additional hygienists are still needed. General support volunteers are also enthusiastically welcomed.

Christy McGill, director of Healthy Communities, the sponsoring entity for the RAM visit, noted that medical professionals from both in and out of the state can volunteer. The Coalition is offering to pay for hotel rooms for health care professionals traveling long distances, and hot meals and snacks are provided throughout the day for all volunteers. 

For questions about the RAM event in Silver Springs, please call (775) 350-9250 or visit their website.
