January 18 - 26 1999 -- Read the mission updates from Dr. Wasserstein
The 1999 Northeast VOSH group.
Volunteer Optometric Services To Humanity is an organization of optometrists and other interested individuals who are dedicated to providing vision care to people around the world who can not afford or obtain it. Northeast VOSH is the largest VOSH chapter, and as of this year is the first chapter to include dental services to the optometry, optical, and medical services offered. Northeast VOSH has strong ties to the School of Optometry at the State University of New York (SUNY), which sponsors a program to send student optometrists to our annual mission.
In January, 1999, a group of fifty volunteers assembled for a mission to the town of Masatepe, Nicaragua. This year's group was the largest that Northeast VOSH has ever assembled for a mission. Optometrists, Optometry students, Opticians, Medical Doctors, Registered Nurses, Physician's Assistants, and for the first time ever, a Doctor of Dental Surgery and crew of Dental Technicians made the journey with Northeast Volunteer Optometric Services to humanity. Over the four clinic days, this group collectively saw three thousand eleven individual patients. The library of glasses that made the vision mission possible was another record setter for a Northeast VOSH mission, totaling over twelve thousand pair.
