RAM founder to receive CWRU's Inamori Ethics Prize
Date:4/14/2010

urban centers, Americans without insurance might as well be miles from medical services.

In 1992, Brock began to focus RAM efforts in the United States, where the organization now provides 64 percent of its services. But U.S. laws that prohibit health care professionals from practicing across state lines hampered Brock's early outreach.

RAM is headquartered near Brock's home in Tennessee, where, with his influence, the aptly titled Volunteer State has changed its laws to make it possible for many medical volunteers to legally serve beyond state boundaries. Brock continues efforts to affect laws across the country.

RAM healthcare providers have served hundreds of thousands of people and tens of thousands of animals. RAM projects include the Guyana Air Ambulance service, the Guyana Cervical Cancer Project, and the Rural America Program. RAM conducts its medical missions wherever they are needed, regardless of danger or difficult conditions, from conflict-torn East Africa to post-earthquake Haiti. Nicknamed "Saint Stan," Brock himself takes no salary and lives in an abandoned schoolhouse in Tennessee with no luxuries of any kind. He has no family and no other pursuits, working tirelessly day after day to bring healthcare and hope to desperate people from the hills of Appalachia to the mountains of Nepal.

"When we asked Dr. Inamori to give us an example of the type of person we should honor with this prize, he said, 'Mother Theresa.' Stan Brock certainly fits that model. He is hard-working, humble and utterly selfless, and he has dedicated his life to the service of those in need," French said.
