From April 27 through May 3, Remote Area Medical (RAM) will provide free medical, dental and vision care to anyone who needs it with no cost, no income test, insurance requirement or restriction of any kind at the Los Angeles Sports Arena (3939 N. Figueroa St., near USC) from 6:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

This event will feature at least 100 dental stations, 45 medical exam rooms, and 25 eye exam stations.

Dental services will include cleanings, extractions, fillings, restorative procedures and root canals. Eye exams will include eye glasses that will be ground and fitted on-site. Mammography, pap smears, chest x-rays, and diabetes screening, blood pressure screening, and other services will also be provided.

Follow-up care will be arranged for those who need it, with most referrals to private sector practices and facilities.
