The Healing Fields

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on November 13, 2008

Many uninsured and underinsured Americans head over once a year to Wise County, Va, early in the morning to line up with hopes of receiving medical care at the three day Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps clinic, where hundreds of doctors, dentists and volunteers come over to offer their services for free. For some Americans, including children, this is the one time in the entire year they actually go to the doctors because of the lack of proper health care at their local communities or the high costs for medical care.  The longest lines are for dental or vision care. At times, the clinic must turn down patients due to high demand. These videos are proof that we are in desperate need for a better health care system in America.
