Free Healthcare Aug. 11-18 in Inglewood!

Anyone uninsured and interested in attaining some medical, dental, or vision care may want to know about RAM LA 2009:

The Forum
3900 W. Manchester Blvd.
Inglewood, CA 90305
Registration begins at 5:30AM daily

Taken from the RAM website:
The Remote Area Medical® (RAM) Volunteer Corps is a non-profit, volunteer, airborne relief corps dedicated to serving mankind by providing free health care, dental care, eye care, veterinary services, and technical and educational assistance to people in remote areas of the United States and the world.
The LA Forum website had more details about the event:
Our parking lot will open at 3:30AM and registration begins at 5:30AM daily. Services will be offered on a first-come first-served basis each day so please arrive early if you would like to be seen. Registration numbers will be handed out at 3:30AM when we open the parking lot. If you are being dropped off or if you are walking to The Forum we will also have a table where you can walk up and receive a registration number.
You may also call their line at The Forum @ 310-330-7310.
Please spread the word, not only to those who might want to get care, but to any medical professionals who may be able to volunteer. Information about volunteering is also on RAM LA 2009.

With the 3:30AM start time, it looks like they are (prudently) expecting a massive number of people. If your healthcare needs are not immediate but you are in need of assistance, LA County Helps might offer a suitable program.


  1. I was thinking of taking my 10 year old for a dental check-up. He lost part of his front tooth and needs a crown. Is your free healthcare service providing that too? Please let me know

    Thank You!

  2. I know that they offer free dental exams. The last report I heard said that there was about a 2-hour wait for dental care. You can call the number on the website and ask regarding the crown. Good luck!
