More than 600 people have signed up to get free health screenings, eye exams and even dental work at Silver Stage High School in rural Silver Springs.

And more than 150 volunteers - many of them medical and dental professionals - are donating their time and services to help people in the area who are uninsured or can't afford treatment.

The event is called MORE - Medical Outreach Response Event.
