The Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps (Rural America Program) covers about 205,000 square miles over portions of 13 states and serves the rural Appalachian region. The primary purpose of Rural America Program is to provide vision and dental care for underserved areas of the US. Many of the 420 counties in this region are the poorest in the nation and offer very little, if any infrastructure. In some of these areas, with some of the highest rates of unemployment in the country, there is a shortage of basic healthcare services. The hard work of a number of very dedicated volunteer dentists and dental professionals helps to make RAM expeditions a success.
