The fifth annual Remote Area Medical (RAM) clinic will be held in Pike County this weekend.

The clinic will be at Pike County Central High School Saturday June 9 and Sunday June 10.

More than 450 volunteers have signed up to offer general medical and dental services, and eyecare free of charge to anyone who cannot afford regular medical services.

"There's a lot of people in our county or in the area that can't afford the services, so these are volunteers that are willing to give up their time to give back to the community and help those that are in need," said Event Coordinator Carol Napier.

Numbers will be given out starting at midnight Friday night, and doors will open at 6 a.m. Saturday.
