Eric saves the day!

Maymester classes began yesterday….9:30 – 12:30. On Day 1 we learned the vision screening protocol (thanks again to Dr. Finney and her office staff), practiced hearing screenings on each other, practiced the presentation on Language Development, and played Jeopardy to remember information we have learned about Zambia.

But a little glitch to start the day: one of the 4 otoscopes we take to Zambia was dead. Many thanks to Eric for saving the day!!! Turnes out it was not the battery (as I suspected) but just the bulb and with a quick change of the bulb by Eric we are good to go!! Thanks Eric!!!!


On Day 2 we got to practice hearing screenings on 4 children age 19 months to 4 years) and vision screenings on the two older kids (3-4 years). Huge thanks to the parents who volunteered to bring their children! It was a great learning experience for the undergraduate students!! Go team!!
