Recent and Upcoming Clinics
The 2016 clinic schedule has recently been completed as our Ghana clinic was wrapped up on Nov 26th. We successfully completed 8 clinics to Mexico, and one each to Peru, Panama and Ghana, for a total of 11 clinics. A total of 18,260 patients were seen by 61 doctors and 104 Technicians. These are record highs in all categories. If you are interested in going on one of the missions look on the web site for the dates and contact Dr. Bill Iannaconne if you are interested in going as a tech or Dr. John Demshar if you are a Doctor.
We are also helping locally assisting the RAM Project with glasses in Reno, Oakland, Sacramento, Los Angeles and Oakland. We also work with Project Homeless Connect in San Francisco and help with Military Stand Downs in Pleasanton, Salinas, Ventura, Eureka and most recently in Antioch.
With all of these clinics we need as much help as you can give us in collecting glasses. Recently the San Martin Lions Club was able to get permission to collect glasses in the Dollar Stores. This led to almost six thousand pair of glasses including a lot of the readers we always need.
