Remote Area Medical
The Commissioned Corps’ Readiness and Deployment Operations Group (RedDOG) and RAM Oklahoma (RAMOK) have teamed up to host an event in Durant, OK on May 14-15, 2016 in conjunction with the USPHS Scientific and Training Symposium in Oklahoma City (OKC).  RedDOG’s Rapid Deployment Force 4 (RDF-4) has been identified as the Corps’ operational lead for the event.  RDF-4 is seeking qualified officers to augment the team in the provision of medical, dental, and optometric care and health screenings.  The majority of the services provided will consist of dental and optometric care.  Officers with skills in optometry and dentistry are highly encouraged to volunteer for the event.  It is anticipated that select other disciplines will be needed to ensure the event’s success.
