Community Initiatives

ACCESS NOW
Access Now is a community partnership initiated by the Richmond Academy of Medicine in 2008 to improve access to specialty health care for low-income, uninsured residents of the greater Richmond metropolitan area. The program connects the primary care received in a local clinic or health system with donated physician specialty care in a coordinated referral program.

CROSSOVER HEALTHCARE MINISTRY - BAGS OF CARE
CrossOver Healthcare Ministry provides high quality compassionate healthcare, promotes wellness, and connects community talents and resources with people in need.  RAMA Foundation supports CrossOver clients with basic personal care items during the holiday season in bags of care.
