First Optometry Trip 1/6/2018–Need Drivers!!

Hello Flying Samaritan Member!

Our next Clinic Trip will be taking place Saturday, January 6th, at our Ensenada clinic site. This is a very special opportunity, since it will be our very First Optometry Clinic! We will need more Spanish speakers than usual for translating, but don’t let that dissuade you if you do not speak Spanish! ALSO, no driver’s have signed up, which are necessary to bring down our volunteers and providers. So, if you can go and drive, please sign up!

We will be holding a mandatory pre-clinic meeting that week on Thursday, January 4th, in Geisel Library 1st Floor West: Room 1042 at 7pm for those chosen to attend. If you cannot make this time and are chosen to attend, please let me know so that we can work out another time.

We will meet for the trip at 5:30 AM, in the parking lot in front of Stein Clinical Research on the School of Medicine Campus (Search “lot P602” or “Stein Clinical” at We will arrive back at UCSD around 7-10 PM, depending on how long it takes to cross the border, so please plan accordingly.
