Free healthcare at pop-up medical clinic in Fort Worth

Five North Texas universities will unite this weekend to provide free health care to those who are underserved and uninsured.

For two days, dental, vision and medical care will be free on a first-come, first-served basis. No ID is required.

HSC and RAM have partnered on the clinic for the past two years. This year, the Texas Christian University College of Nursing, Texas Woman’s University, Texas A&M University School of Dentistry and The College of Health Care Professions all will send faculty and student volunteers to this year’s clinic on Nov. 4 and 5 in Fort Worth.

The extra resources mean dental services will be available for the first time.

Services available at the free RAM clinic include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental Xrays, eye exams, eye health exams, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglasses made on-site and general medical exams. Additional point-of-care testing will be available such as A1C and testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Due to time constraints, patients should be prepared to choose between DENTAL and VISION services.

Medical services are offered, in addition to dental or vision services, free to every patient attending the clinic.
