Jean Stephson, right, talks to the founder of the Remote Area Medical Clinic, the late Stan Brock, about the need for medical care in Southside Virginia.   

The Community Host Group signed the contract with RAM to bring the remote area medical clinic back to Greensville County High School for a fourth year.

The high school will convert into a dental, medical and vision clinic. The preparation for the event is already underway. The RAM 2020 Emporia event starts with the Kickoff Meeting 6 p.m. Tuesday at Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center.

The Community Host Group will share statistics, goals and needs. Invitations have been distributed.
