NECO faculty and student provide eye screenings at community event sponsored by Representative Jeffrey Sánchez
On August 20, 2015, NECO faculty, residents, and students participated in a Back to School Jam event sponsored by Representative Jeffrey Sánchez in the Mission Hill neighborhood of Boston. Representative Sánchez, chair of the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing, is a strong proponent of providing strong health care to the community. He sponsors annual back to school events in his district to kick off the school year and provide free health screenings, school supplies, information, and entertainment for children in three locations in Boston and Brookline.
This year, New England Eye’s mobile clinic, On-Sight, travelled to Mission Hill. Representing the New England College of Optometry, Dr. Bruce Moore and Dr. Gary Chu were joined by NECO students to provide eye screenings to participating children and adults aboard the mobile van.
