Dental, Vision professionals needed for weekend clinic at MTC

Follow-up story in HT

Last November, about 1,000 of the underserved population from Manatee, Sarasota and surrounding counties received free medical, dental and vision care at the Remote Area Medical (RAM) Clinic at Manatee Technical College in Bradenton.

Adults and children alike benefited from dental work including fillings, extractions and cleanings. Over 400 individuals received eye exams and were fitted with prescription glasses before leaving the clinic.
That’s the good news. The downside? Approximately 500 people were turned away because there were not enough dental and vision professionals on hand to provide the needed services to all who came.

This year’s clinic is scheduled for October 13 and 14 at MTC’s main campus on State Road 70 in Bradenton.
