A two-day free medical clinic for West Virginia flood victims and others in need is being planned this fall in Kanawha County.

Organizers announced the clinic Wednesday at a news conference in Charleston.

The clinic will be held Oct. 22 and 23 at Elkview Middle School.

It is being hosted by Charleston-based West Virginia Health Right, which provides free medical, dental and vision health services. Remote Area Medical, a nonprofit group based in Rockford, Tennessee, will run the clinic.

RAM says on its website that patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis and must choose between dental or vision services at the same visit.

Organizers say volunteers are being sought to assist at the clinic and food will be provided.
