SLU Community Engagement Inventory


Description: First and Second year medical students perform vision screenings to patients who cannot afford vision care otherwise every weekend at the Health Resource Center. Patient's who are noted for needing additional care from an optometrist or glasses are referred to a specialty Sunday Clinic. At our specialty Sunday clinic's, optometry interns, medical students, Dr. Porter, and the charity ECOMA make it possible to provide glasses to those who need them free of charge.
