Remote Area Medical Volunteers Treat Patients

A dentist walks past waiting patients at the 16th annual Remote Area Medical (RAM), clinic in Wise, Virginia, U.S., on Friday, July 17, 2015. RAM is a nonprofit that delivers free medical care to people living in rural areas. On RAM’s first day it took in over 1,600 patients, setting an opening day record. By noon on Saturday, RAM had taken in another 1,000 patients. One woman’s life may have been saved on Friday after women’s health physicians determined she had a dangerous ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. She was taken to an area hospital for further care. In recent years, 2,500 to 3,000 people have sought care at this clinic at the fairgrounds. Photographer: Pete Marovich/Bloomberg
