Over 600 people in Harrisonburg and the surrounding areas received life-saving medical and dental care over the weekend at the Remote Area Medical Clinic that took place at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds. Remote Area Medical (RAM) is a major nonprofit provider of free mobile clinics whose mission is to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by proving free, quality healthcare to those in need.
Hundreds of volunteers came together to help make the event happen. Laura Toni-Holsinger, Executive Director of United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, reflects on her time volunteering at the clinic and shares why United Way decided to help fund the event:
"Never take your health or access to healthcare for granted. We're working toward solutions in our community that will enable access to quality, affordable healthcare for all. Until everyone has this, we are grateful to support programs like Remote Area Medical to meet immediate, emergency needs."
Funding for the RAM Clinic was provided by United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County and the Sentara RMH Foundation.
