Doctor Improves Lives at Clinic
At the OneSight regional clinic in Fishkill, NY Clinic (July 5-17), team members traveled to several camps run by The Fresh Air Fund, an organization that gives inner-city children a summer camp experience. It was clear from the Clinic team blog that volunteers changed many lives and made very strong connections with patients and fellow team members:
- “My last few days here have been beyond imaginable. Even though I worked with each child for a brief period of time, their strength, courage, intelligence and individuality was shining. After finishing optometry school, I always wondered if I was really just going to flip lenses and say 1 or 2. Through the OneSight Fishkill Clinic, I have found my way of reaching out to children and many others. I couldn't be happier saying 1 or 2.” – Dr. Maithreyi Vallabhajosyula (LensCrafters)
- “We are giving these children tools for a better future and changing their lives forever. We are also connecting with each other and making bonds that will last for years to come.” – Chauna White (Sunglass Hut)
