Next:Remote Area Medical Louisiana Free Clinic

Carol and I worked with Remote Area Medical(RAM)in Haiti after the quake. They were instrumental in flying in and delivering to us crucial supplies and logistics. When the governor of Louisiana asked RAM if they would provide medical care for those people suffering from the oil spill, they asked us if we would help round up volunteers. Carol, my sons Eric and Austin, and three members of my dental staff volunteered to go. It may be too late to sign up, as paper work for licensing needs to be done, but usually where there is a will there is a way. Some details below:

Remote Area Medical® has scheduled a free medical, dental and vision expedition to Louisiana. This will be a two prong clinic, the Oil Spill Coastline of Plaquemines Parish and Orleans Parish. We have a great need for doctors,nurses, dentists, hygienists and dental assistants at both locations.
The Plaquemines Parish location is also set. It is about 45 minutes south of New Orleans. There is really limited lodging there so we have arranged another civic center to be available and we are going to house volunteers there. There will be cots available and bathroom/shower facilities. We also hope to set up some type of shuttle services between the lodging areas and the clinics.

The airport has a shuttle to the downtown hotels, but not south to Plaquemines Parish. The cost of all transportation is the responsibility of the volunteer.

The most important dates of attendance are Friday, August 27th to Sunday, August 29th. If you want to attend set up on Thursday and tear down on Monday that is great, otherwise arriving sometime Thursday and departing late on Sunday or early Monday is fine. We are happy for any part of this you can make work out.

We need your help to make this two part clinic a success. Please email or call 865-579-1530, if you need any assistance.
