SHAC-Ophthalmology Outreach


In 2010, the SHAC-Ophthalmology Outreach was created to organize ophthalmologic screenings outside of the SHAC-OC clinic, to expand the joint missions of teaching and serving the community of the SHAC-OC and OIG to the greater community.

Recently the SHAC-Ophthalmology Outreach performed vision and glaucoma screening at the St. Thomas Moore Elementary School Latino Health Fair.  The 12 medical student volunteers and Dr. Richard Davis and Dr. Maurice Landers of the UNC Department of Ophthalmology screened 87 adults at this event!
