Governor Cooper Applauds Post-Florence Volunteer Efforts, Including Vision Screening
Governor Roy Cooper visited the Word of Faith Ministries shelter on November 15, 2018 to thank the facility, staff and volunteers for their work to help those impacted by Hurricane Florence. In his remarks, Gov. Cooper made special mention of the volunteer support coordinated by the NC Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons and the NC Medical Society in making the October 13th vision screening event at the shelter possible.
Dr. George Escaravage of Wilmington and Dr. Mike Geiger of Fayetteville volunteered their time and expertise at the event in Kenansville, NC. The two ophthalmologists screened over 60 shelter residents, and all who needed vision correction left with a pair of readers or a prescription that was filled at no cost by Centene, the event sponsor.
In welcoming the Governor, shelter director Patsy Quinn expressed her gratitude to the NCSEPS and NCMS and specifically to Drs. Escaravage and Geiger. The Governor added his appreciation for their volunteer service in his remarks.
