WILMINGTON — Very carefully, Bryan Hoover, parked the 60-foot long truck and trailer that makes up the North Carolina Lions Mobile Screening Unit in Front of the MedNorth Clinic on North Fourth Street. Bryan is the State Coordinator for the NC Lions Mobile Screening Unit, or MSU.
Members of the Wilmington Lions and community volunteers were there ready to help set up all necessary equipment to conduct the hearing and vision screenings on Nov. 30, 2016.
The hearing and vision screenings were offered for free and are sponsored by the Wilmington Lions Club.
Bill Janega, a Licensed Hearing instrument Specialist donated his morning to help with the hearing screenings using the sound booth and Tremetrics RA500 Audiometer installed on the mobile screening unit.
Lion Doctor Jamie Casper, OD, and two of his student externs assisted with the vision screenings. His interns are Ms. Cynthia Tang an extern from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and Mr. G. Logan Scherzinger from Western University in California.
Thirty-five clients were given free vision and hearing screenings. Based on the individuals screening results recommendations were made when they should have a complete hearing or vision exam and/or to see their personal medical provider.
