CONGRATULATIONS TO DR. BARBARA BRISCOE

The Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation (‘OLSHF’) held its annual awards dinner and fundraising gala November 10th at the Elysian Ballroom in downtown Portland. Among the gala’s awards and award recipients was Dr. Barbara Briscoe and CVIM!

The ‘Vision Provider of the Year’ award was presented to Dr. Barbara Briscoe/ Founders Clinic-Volunteers in Medicine Clackamas. Since our partnership began in 2015, Dr. Briscoe has ordered more than 300 pairs of glasses for patients at her clinic and to patients referred by the local Lions Clubs. Because of her dedication to help people who are uninsured or underinsured and below the 200% poverty level, she volunteers as an optometrist at the Founders Clinic where hundreds of Oregonians have received complete, free eye exams and received low cost glasses through the Optical Finishing Lab.
