For hundreds of people, it's a chance to receive much-needed medical care.

The Remote Area Medical clinic, or RAM, came to the Knott County Sportsplex over the weekend.

The event provides free medical, dental, and eye screenings for those in need.

“We have a lot of un-insured and under-insured people in this area we wanted to be able to provide these services to help them,” Julie Haynes, RAM Coordinator said.

“I think it's awesome that people are willing to donate their time and their services to help people a little less fortunate. You know because if it wasn't for this, I'm telling you right now, my kids probably would never be going to the dentist,” Natasha Petty said.

RAM organizers say they are in the planning stages of creating a RAM Kentucky Division.

Their goal is to open coordinating offices in Pike County, where people can call to donate or volunteer for future ram events.
