FHU Hosts RAM Dental Clinic, Serves 100+ Area Residents


Freed-Hardeman University’s Remote Area Medical (RAM®) Chapter made a difference in the lives of approximately 101 individuals by providing services valued at nearly $60,000 during a pop-up dental clinic held Sept. 30 through Oct. 1, 2022, at the National Guard Armory in Henderson. Inside the armory several areas were organized to serve patients. In triage, FHU nursing students helped process paperwork and prioritize patient needs. Once processed, patients waited in a large room with 10 stations separated by white tents, clear plastic and tape on the floor. The area was designated for dental students from University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis to provide patient care under the supervision of professionals. Patients received treatment for toothaches, along with cleanings, fillings and extractions during the two-day clinic.
