SUNY Optometry’s student chapter of VOSH International (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) traveled to Grenada this July to help provide eye exams to 1,286 Grenadians alongside optometrists from the organization’s North Carolina chapter.
Many patients visit VOSH vision clinics every year and rely on these services for their eye care.
“We could not be more proud of [the students’] work ethic, compassion and clinical skill,” said Dr. Jill Scullion, president of VOSH North Carolina and director of health policy for Envolve Vision. “We have had many students join us on these missions over the years. They should be proud of the way that they carried themselves and how they represented SUNY.”
