Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity

Mission to San Juan del Sur January 2nd-11th 2014

This mission trip to San Juan del Sur was filled with plenty of activity!  It included not only Vision Care Services but also a Rotary Project and an off-the-cuff rescue of a bird snagged by a surf fisherman.  The four intern doctors from the UC Berkeley Optometry School (Monica Chernoguz, Amber Egbert, Dinna Lee, Tara Pahlevan) that worked in "Clinic 1" were exceptional and seemed to learn incrementally over the four days of the clinic.  It was rewarding to see the excitement they had to provide exceptional care to the needy in Nicaragua.  Priceless also was their zest for learning valuable clinical and interpersonal skills.
