HOPE Clinic reaching the community

Posted On: 06/07/2018

To better serve the diverse population of Houston, UHCO created a unique partnership with the Asian American Health Coalition, dba HOPE Clinic, to provide eye care to Houston's growing Asian community.

This partnership yields learning opportunities for 3rd and 4th year optometric students to understand co-management between pediatrics, adult, internal medicine, nutrition and behavioral health services. A unique characteristic of HOPE Clinic is its capacity to provide services in 14 different languages.

Susana Moreno, OD ’14, serves as the HOPE optometry clinic director and is active in the community raising awareness to high-risk neighborhoods.
