What is RAM Emory?

Remote Area Medical (RAM) is a non-profit organization that works with local community leaders to host pop-up free clinics in medically underserved rural areas. In the greater part of Georgia, there are many remote areas, specifically 89 of Georgia’s 159 counties have been designated Primary Care Shortage Areas, where there is a lack of access to healthcare resources. Also, an overwhelming 41 percent of Georgia’s rural hospitals are at high risk of closure. By providing free and publicly accessible medical clinics, RAM improves healthcare options for thousands of individuals. Providing medical, dental, and vision services, which are otherwise unattainable due to poor insurance coverage, RAM contributes dental equipment, vision equipment, mobile units, tools, organization, and logistics to their clinics. RAM Emory members want to raise student awareness of rural health disparities and act to alleviate them.

How Your Support Helps

Your donation will help reduce the financial burden of this project and help us accomplish three goals:

  • Sending groups of Emory students to volunteer at free clinics set up by RAM.
  • Allowing the Emory RAM executive board to travel so they can observe a free clinic set up by the organization.
  • Coordinating Emory’s clinic in rural Georgia in partnership with RAM.

Currently, the RAM Emory executive board is working to finalize a location for the potential clinic and working to fundraise to allow this project to come to fruition. By supporting Emory RAM, you allow our dream of making healthcare more accessible in rural Georgia to be possible.

Thank you so much for your support!
