Residents of Manu'a in American Samoa have had access to free medical services from a Flying Doctors of America team this week.
The six-member team, including two physicians, a dentist and two dental hygienists, served a steady stream of patients in Manu'a for the three days on island.
The dental cases they handled while in Manu'a were mainly check-ups and extractions.
Meanwhile, physician David Scurlock said they saw a widespread need to access more regular and ongoing medication for various conditions.
"It's very difficult for most to get that medication and have it on a continual basis so they would want to come in to be checked out: mostly hypertension and diabetes which need medication on a continual basis. They would be out of those important medications and would look to us for access to those medications."
