Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) and Remote Area Medical (RAM) will be having its clinic on June 6 and 7.
No veterinary services will be available during the 2015 event at LMU.
The Tex Turner Arena parking lot will open at midnight and numbers will begin to be distributed at 3 a.m. The clinic will open at 6 a.m. each day. All services are rendered on a first-come, first-served basis, with no eligibility requirements. Patients are encouraged to arrive early (by 3:30 am), be prepared for inclement weather and long waits and bring snacks and drinks to last throughout the day. Patients who are unable to stand for long periods of time are encouraged to bring a lawn chair with them.
The patient entrance will be located at the lower level of Tex Turner Arena, which is behind the building. The lower level parking lot will be reserved for event staff and handicapped parking only. All other parking will be in the upper parking lot; shuttle buses will run from that lot to the patient entrance throughout the weekend.
A variety of free services will be rendered at LMU:
• Medical services will include specialist exams, osteopathic manipulations, diabetes screenings and education, cholesterol screenings, pulmonary function testing, pap smears, breast exams and medication assistance.
• Dental cleanings, fillings and extractions will be performed onsite.
• Vision services include complete eye exam with eyeglasses to be made on site, as time and supplies permit.
