NASA and Flirtey drones deliver medications and supplies to the RAM Health Clinic. Remote Area Medical (RAM) provides medical care through mobile clinic events in underserved, isolated, or impoverished communities. Most clinics provide general medical, dental, vision, preventive care, and education. As attendees of the Wise County medical clinic are prescribed medications, the scripts will be sent to a large out-of-city pharmacy. The pharmacy fills the prescriptions and loads them onto a NASA fixed-wing aircraft which will be guided remotely to the Lonesome Pine airport. Here, Flirtey drones made from carbon fiber, aluminum and 3D printed parts will complete the last leg of the journey.
