VBCF will once again participate in RAM (Remote Area Medical) to be held July 17-19, 2015 in Wise, VA. This event brings health care screening, services, and education to Wise County, an extremely rural area of Virginia. VBCF runs the cancer education program tent and provides volunteers for child care and other support services. In 2014 VBCF volunteers, made up of cancer survivors, nurses, and pharmacy students, taught 22 classes and offered tobacco cessation counseling to hundreds of people.
