Looking to help in the fight against coronavirus? We need your help.

Remote Area Medical—RAM®, a major nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free, quality, dental, vision, and medical care to underserved and uninsured individuals, is collaborating with national organizations to staff COVID-19 drive-through testing sites with administrative, non-clinical volunteers.

Currently, there is an immediate need for general support volunteers to help on-site in Louisville, Kentucky. Please continue to check our website at www.ramusa.org for volunteer opportunities in new locations. 

RAM’s unique experience in mobile healthcare settings, operational insight, and national community of volunteers uniquely positions RAM to aid in efforts during this trying time.

Volunteers will help perform initial eligibility screening, check IDs, confirm appointments, obtain patient consent, assemble specimen kits, assist with registration, deliver kits to vehicles, assist volunteers as they don and doff personal protective equipment (PPE), and direct traffic. All Volunteers will be provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) and will be trained in how to use this equipment.

You should not volunteer if you or someone you live with is:

  • Over the age of 65.
  • Experiencing any health issues (diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, lung disease, or immunosuppression).
  • Not feeling well or experiencing a fever.
  • Infected with the coronavirus.
  • Nursing or pregnant.

For a full list of those at higher risk for more serious complications from COVID-19 visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/high-risk-complications.html

We do not know who in the testing line has the Coronavirus. Volunteering to work near people who may be infected puts you at a higher risk for getting the Coronavirus. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through coughs and sneezes. If you sign up, please know you are doing so at your own risk.

If you are interested in volunteering, please go to volunteer.ramusa.org. You will need to create a volunteer profile. When asked if you are interested in volunteering at a COVID - 19 testing site, make sure to select “yes”.

Please forward this email along to anyone you know who may be interested in volunteering! 

Thank you for joining RAM in these efforts to help those in need. We sincerely hope to hear from you soon.

With gratitude,

Mary R. Brown - RAM Volunteer Manager
