"RAMUSA-Bradenton WRAP UP"
By Cristiane Roget, correspondent PR World Media
As countless patients are physically and financially harmed by a health care system that is meant to heal them, Remote Area Medical USA served as a beacon in Bradenton, Florida of how to heal what is ailing. This past weekend upwards to a 1000 volunteers gathered in collaboration with the non for profit Remote Area Medical USA to put a stint on hemorrhaging medical costs.
Beluschi’s Captain Kirk and Chevy Chase’s Spock protest fighting with intellect and laser to quell their evil menaces in suits and ties. The two intrepid captains insist, “Our mission is to protect and save countless lives and innocents where no man has gone before”. Undeterred the NBC production crew strikes the set, rolls out the walls, shuts down the power and removes Spock’s prosthetic ears.
With many physicians and patients alike originating from as far as Texas, Kentucky and New Hampshire the Doctors, Dentists and Vision practitioners frantically continued to administer treatments with their own magic Vulcan touch, as the walls were dismantled around them.
The RAM production crew proceeded to roll up rubber mats, disassemble the pipe and drape, fold up privacy curtains, sterilize the 70,000 pounds of medical tools and pack up $55,000. in sponsored peripherals. “With RAM having hosted 700 similar clinics from Appalachia to Lesbos Greece, over the last three decades this maneuver took on stealth like precision that would be the envy of most logistical coordinators, said T.J. Brown of SCNWG.COM.
RAM had rolled in 36 hours ago with an eye glass refactor cube truck, a 50,000 watt air and diesel powered power source and a Mac truck laden with a 100 state-of-the-art dental chairs to advanced optical testing equipment. Remote Area Medical’s founder and visionary, Captain Stan Brock in safari flak shirt stood by with a Zen like calm orchestrating the strike of the ‘set’ as he has done over three decades in treacherous destinations as far afield as Nepal, Haiti to New Orleans. Their pop-up hospital situated in the Manatee Technical Institute campus was disbanded and the RAM crew was set for the overland trek back to headquarters in rural Knoxville, Tennessee.
