Last weekend, Dr. Cecelia Koetting volunteered her time providing optometric services for a Remote Area Medical Clinic in Smyth County, Virginia.
This pop-up health clinic provided free health care to those who otherwise could not afford it. Services ranged from primary care to dentistry to optometric care.
More than 773 patients were seen and nearly $500,000 in services were provided during the clinic.
