"ChildSight® gives glasses to kids at Chief Manuelito Middle School"

Ender Kirin reports that HKI's ChildSight® program in New Mexico reached over 600 students at Chief Manuelito Middle School during the week of October 11th.  The screenings coincided with World Sight Day which is held annually on the second Thursday of October, and is a day of global awareness about how to avoid and treat blindness and visual impairment

As program manager Angie Holtsoi points out, "some of these students wouldn’t otherwise have access to an optometrist."
