NEWPORT-The possibility of Cocke County hosting another RAM (Rural Area Medical) event was among the reports heard by members of the Cocke County Partnership's Executive Community during their February meeting on Thursday.

Don Ellison, reporting for the Cocke County Health Council, told the group that a committee has been named to explore the possibility of hosting such an event in "about a year to 18 months" has been named.

"We'll need over 200 volunteers," said Ellison, "if we're to do this." According to Ellison, the last RAM event held in Cocke County was highly successful. "We raised about $11,000 for that one," he explained, "and received $108,000 in healthcare."
