KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Remote Area Medical will host a three-day pop-up clinic in Knoxville from Feb. 11 to 13 to provide free dental, vision, and medical care to underserved and uninsured individuals.
The clinic will be set up at the Jacob Building located at Chilhowee Park, 3301 E. Magnolia Ave.
Services will include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, dental x-rays, eye exams, glaucoma testing, eyeglass prescription, eyeglasses made on-site, women’s health exams, flu shots and general medical exams, officials said.

Clinic officials said patients should be prepared with their food, water, medicines and clothing when arriving early. All patients will be required to wear a face mask and undergo a COVID-19 screening before receiving care.
