By Uncategorized | No Comments

Referring eye care providers and Sight Connection staff got to meet each at last night’s first Providers Open House.  Optometrists and ophthalmologists in private practice as well as Children’s Hospital, Kaiser Permanente and

Virginia Mason were represented.  There were ongoing tours of Sight Connection’s programs.  Lots of activity at the silent auction tables especially for the fresh Copper River filleted sockeyes thanks to Clinic Coordinator

Emily Kallander.
