Clinic Trip (First Optometry Clinic!)

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 maplink.ucsd.edu). We will arrive back at UCSD around 7-10 PM, depending on how long it takes to cross the border, so please plan accordingly.

Please sign up if you are interested in attending by filling out the form below:

Fiesta Clinic Trip

On December 16th, we will be holding our annual fiesta clinic. This is an exciting clinic as we hold a small Christmas party with a piñata and give out gifts to the kids. The gifts include children’s clothing, new toys, and school supplies.  In order to have these gifts for the children, we will be holding a donation drive. If you would like to donate to the children, we will be giving out clinic points in exchange for donations of:

·      new toys

·      school supplies

·      children’s clothing

We will be collecting these donations. Please email the clinic coordinator account to set up a meet-up time to collect the donations (ucsdflyingsams.cliniccoord@gmail.com).

Here is the clinic point breakdown:

·      2 new toys = 1 point; 3 new toys= points

·      4 school supplies = 1 point; 6 school supplies = 2 points

·      children’s clothing: up to the discretion of our clinic coordinators depending on what is donated

Please note that only 3 points total can be acquired through donations per person.

This is a great way to earn clinic points and the children are much appreciative of your donations. We thank you in advance for your generosity!
