Free health care set for Nashville next month

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- McGavock High School in Nashville will be transformed into a massive free health clinic for two days next month.

According to radio station WPLN, medical, dental and vision services will be offered to an estimated 2,000 people.

The school's gymnasium will be transformed into 50 complete dental stations Feb. 19-20. Down the hall, doctors will treat patients and vision exams will be given. Outside, a mobile optical lab will make eyeglasses.

Knoxville-based Remote Area Medical has helped run more than 600 such weekend charity clinics. Organizer Ron Brewer says they've lined up enough doctors to work the Nashville clinic, but they still need more volunteer dentists and vision care providers.
