Overview of team activities — This team opened and operates a satellite University Eye Center in collaboration with Baldwin Family Health Care. The clinic provides quality eye care and patient education to over 500 patients at a minimal cost to our local population most in need. This includes the uninsured and underinsured. As a two-fold benefit, they are also giving practical experience to students in our optometry program. They not only have been able to help numerous patients, and also has contributed to the long-term sustainability of Ferris State University in the University Eye Center by giving back to our surrounding community. Patients are seen in Baldwin, but most of the paperwork is done on campus. These generous and caring team members have demonstrated that we all can make a difference.
