In 2017, the Foundation contributed $15,000 to Lincoln Community Health Center to help purchase a new retinal camera. The camera is used in the diagnosis and treatment of persons with diabetes, which is among the most prevalent conditions seen in Lincoln’s patients. Use of the new camera will benefit almost 800 patients annually.
“The retinal camera is an important diagnostic tool for our patients,” says Howard Eisenson, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Lincoln. “We are grateful for the partnership and financial support provided by the Foundation each year.”
“We are very pleased to support the patients at Lincoln Community Health Center,” says Carolyn E. Henderson, Board Chairperson of the Lincoln Community Health Center Foundation. “The money raised from the community has helped thousands of patients at Lincoln since the Foundation was formed in 2008.”
