VDAF Mourns Stan Brock


Dr D and Stan Brock

We join with so many across the world in mourning the death of Stan Brock August 29th at the age of 82. His vision to create the Remote Area Medical (RAM) clinic helped connect thousands of Virginians to care, and highlighted the tremendous need for healthcare access in this country. The VDAF began a partnership with Stan and the RAM organization in 2000 in Wise, VA, to broaden access of Virginians to dental care.

We at the VDAF and VDA are honored to have shared the path with Stan in our journeys to help the most vulnerable among us. He leaves behind an incredible legacy of commitment to helping others less fortunate than ourselves and we know that thousands of volunteers will remain forever inspired by his passion and example.

“P.G. grew up in New Jersey, the son of immigrant parents, and in 1944, barely of age, he enlisted in the army, specifically the paratroopers. P.G. was on only his second combat jump when he was captured by German troops and placed briefly in a concentration camp. By the grace of God, this was April,1945, and in approximately one month this camp was liberated by the allies, and P.G. survived.
