Doing the work of Optometry Giving Sight

During the past year I have enjoyed the opportunity to work more closely with an amazing charity, Optometry Giving Sight. Through my affiliation with Vision Source, I was selected to participate in a mentorship training program for optometrists in Tanzania. If are a patient at my office, you have undoubtedly heard me speak passionately about this experience. Many of you have asked me to share more details/stories about this trip. This trip was coordinated in partnership with the International Centre for Eyecare Education. I have had a few articles published about my trip which I will attach soon. Most recently, Primary Care Optometry News published an article describing my interactions with the optometrist that served as my country host. Dr Mashayo was an amazing man and I have learned so much about Tanzania and Tanzanian optometry from him. He and other members of the Tanzanian Optometric Association warmly welcomed me and were truly generous hosts. If you desire to learn more about my recent excursion, please read the article here.
