Richmond Academy of Medicine Alliance Foundation

Community Initiatives

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.
The RAMA Philanthropic Committee annually evaluates community health scholarship opportunities for award.  The following scholarships have been selected as 2019 philanthropic beneficiaries: (4) Nursing programs in the Richmond area: Bon Secours Memorial School of Nursing; J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College School of Nursing; John Tyler Community College School of Nursing; VCU School of Nursing; and (1) medical school, the VCU School of Medicine Scholarship Fund.


This is a yearly event that commemorates in a moving service, the lives of individuals in our community who have died from domestic violence.  RAMA members help by acting as hostesses and providing refreshments.
