RSO’s BIGGEST summer event is the Health & Wellness Expo in San Antonio. The Health Expo was held on Saturday, June 6, 2015 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Our participation in the event is another great example of the UIWRSO commitment to the program’s mission. While volunteering at this event, my classmates and I had a chance to provide complimentary vision screenings as part of a comprehensive wellness conference event. This initiative is also a reflection of our extensive patient contact both inside and outside the clinics.
Additionally, this year, I was asked by the clinic directors to help recruit student volunteers for this huge Health Expo. No surprise, there were a lot of students who went and they all received a cool t-shirt for their help! It was also a great chance for interns to meet other health groups in the area and learn about their field. The Rosenberg School of Optometry booth was super busy where students were giving away swag bags for the attendees. Overall, everyone had a blast!
During the afternoon session, special guest Dr. Phil, talked about making the city a healthier place.
Below is a testimony from our very own professor, Dr. Rabin:
I spent a few hours at the 2nd Annual Health and Wellness EXPO today where UIWRSO made a huge presence thanks to the oversight of Dr. Chapman and Mr. Kruse, multiple invaluable staff and MANY Intern Volunteers…
Dr. Rabin also took some pictures and would like to share them.
