On Nov. 16-17, Remote Area Medical (RAM) provided 933 patients free medical, dental and vision services valued at $478,884. The delivery of these services required a coordinated, collective effort among many agencies and resources to meet patients' needs.

First and foremost, the city of East Ridge administration graciously offered the use of Camp Jordan Arena with the assistance of its parks and recreation staff. The Center for Sports Medicine, Vision Hospitality and WRCB TV3 responded for a fourth time to become major supportive partners. The Chattanooga Lookouts, US-101 and EPB offered amazing promotion. Twenty-nine organizations donated their resources while another 19 institutions, professional programs and companies provided services to enhance the lives of the less fortunate among us.

On behalf the patients and the entire RAM organization, we wish to thank all involved for their empathy, contributions and generosity.

Bob Nevil, chairman
