Ophthalmology Interest Group Activities - Bethesda Mission Project

Students have the opportunity to hone their eye examination skills and interact with patients as well as faculty, residents, and technicians.  This year's visit to the Bethesda Mission in Harrisburg, PA will be held on October 17th.  Each year, approximately 40-50 residents of the mission are examined and provided with corrective lenses during the course of only one day.  Community outreach is an important aspect of a Penn State medical student's education.
