RAM - Wise County

RAM is a collaborative effort between several groups and organizations to provide medical, dental and vision care for those in attendance. Patients travel from all over to receive these health care services. Many of the patients are from the coal counties of Southwest Virginia. This region is home to some of the most medically underserved populations in the state.

Common health concerns of this population include: hypertension, arthritis, poor dentition, depression, heart disease, diabetes and pulmonary disease. Some patients travel for hours and slept in their cars overnight just to receive the free medical and dental care. For many patients, this is the only opportunity they have to see a doctor for the whole year.

UVA provides specialty care teams, such as:

  • Emergency care
  • Women's health
  • Endocrinology
  • Plastic surgery
  • Dermatology
  • General medicine
  • Mammography
