More Mobile Medical Help--Free

A short while ago, I wrote a blog piece on a mobile medical aid unit in Toledo, Ohio, and how you might find a mobile medical unit in your town.  As it happens, there is a nonprofit group that aims to provide mobile care in various poor places in the world--including the United States.  It's the Remote Area Medical volunteers.  They come through towns and provide medical diagnosis and treatment for two days, free of charge.  Here's their U.S. schedule through the end of 2014. While they don't come everywhere, they go through several states, with an emphasis on the Appalachian region in Kentucky and Tennessee.  They also offer veterinary care.

If you are uninsured, you can also find a free health clinic by putting in your address, or your state of county.
