Remembering Stan Brock, founder of Remote Area Medical (RAM)

Stan-head-shot-edits.jpg

On this special edition of Your Call, we remember Stan Brock, founder of Remote Area Medical (RAM), an all-volunteer mobile medical clinic that’s been traveling to cities across the United States offering free healthcare since 1992. 

Brock founded RAM in 1985 to provide care to people living in the most remote areas of the Amazon rainforest. Seven years later, he was asked to bring the clinic to Knoxville, Tennessee. Since then, RAM has provided free care to more than 740,000 individuals. Stan Brock passed away on Wednesday, August 29.
