Event description

Description

This is University of Pittsburgh's Third Annual Vision Screening Station (VSS) Conference. This January, brigaders from universities across the United States will gather to discuss how to best employ and run a sustainable vision screening station as a component of clinics for Global Medical Brigades.

We will have a talk on the global and medical context behind the project, a mock clinic exercise, review resources for starting up or improving your own vision screening station, and have a critical discussion on the eyeglass industry that drives our motivation to strive for equity through this station. This is a great opportunity for you to learn about how the current VSS model has come to be, and ways to either get started or further involved on your own campus GMB chapters.
