The free Remote Area Medical clinic for people who cannot afford or otherwise lack access to health care will return to the Appalachian Fairgrounds in Gray on the first weekend in November.

RAM representatives and officials from several of its key local partners gathered at the fairgrounds Friday to announce the details.

Brooks Blair, executive director of event host Appalachia Project Access, announced this year’s clinic will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday Nov. 2, 3 and 4, and will include free medical, dental and vision, audiology screenings, hearing aids, glasses and more.

Blair said more than 300 people received free care at last year’s fairgrounds RAM, with a total estimated value of more than $487,000.
