RAM Ohio Free Medical Clinic Cancelled Due to Swine Flu Outbreak
Date:4/28/2009

CLEVELAND, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The organizers of a massive community-wide event offering free health, vision, and dental care to the underinsured and un-insured originally planned for this weekend has been cancelled. RAM Ohio (Remote Area Medical), ramohio.org, the group behind the event, received recommendations from both the Ohio Department of Health and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health not to move ahead with the event due to the spreading threat of swine flu infection.

"We were strongly advised by both the State and County health departments not to move forward with this event, due to the escalation of swine flu cases in the United States during the past 12 hours," said RAM Ohio organizer Zac Ponsky. "Our purpose from the very beginning was to promote the health and wellness of our community, and we would do nothing that could potentially put our neighbors at risk. Our group of 2000 volunteers, including 1100 health care professionals, remain very committed to the cause of providing health care to those in need. We will continue to advocate on their behalf in a way that helps to address this critical community problem."

Ponsky said that any decision about a re-scheduled event date has not been addressed and won't be until after the swine flu outbreak has passed.

The event was organized to bring together doctors, nurses, and additional medical personnel to offer free medical, dental, and vision care to the uninsured and underinsured. Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, and MetroHealth, as well as other hospitals and private practices in Northeast Ohio, had mobilized to provide more than 1,100 doctors, nurses, and medical, dental and vision professionals during the two days, scheduled for May 2-3 at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds in Berea, OH.
