Remote Area Medical set up free clinics, sort of like fairs. They move into an area for a weekend, solicit medical people to volunteer, and open themselves to the public.

They held one recently out in the Valley of Virginia. People came from as far away as West Virginia (not all that far) and North Carolina (real far):

The organizers said they had 421 people show up for the event. Think about that for a minute. One weekend, in one little pocket of the richest nation in the world, 421 people came to get free health care because they couldn’t otherwise afford it–either because of unemployment, underemployment or lack of good insurance. The fact that we’re letting this happen (and have been letting it happen for decades) is disgraceful, outrageous and morally unconscionable.
