Remote Area in Medical

Remote Area Medical (RAM) is a non-profit organization that works with local community leaders to host free pop-up 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. . RAM Emory members are committed to increasing student awareness of rural health disparities and act to alleviate them.

An overwhelming 41% of Georgia’s rural hospitals are overburdened and at high risk of closure. RAM clinics over the last year collectively provided treatment to 45,000 patients totaling 15 million dollars in medical treatments. By providing free and publicly accessible medical clinics, RAM improves healthcare options for thousands of individuals. Emory RAM is planning its next clinic, which will take place in September 2023. With this clinic, Emory RAM aims to treat approximately 400 patients and provide over $200,000 worth of medical treatments, at no cost to the patients. We have established a goal of $5,000 to make this clinic a reality! While healthcare professionals and volunteers will be recruited and medical machinery, such as x-ray machines & optometry phoropters, will be provided by the national RAM organization, funding at this level will allow us to cover the costs of remaining clinic supplies.
