At the two-month service mark, Conexus adds another 10 school divisions (in green) to the service map which includes 10,016 students. Of those, another 2,735 (27%) were referred for follow-up vision care. With just a little more than a month to go before the screening season is complete that brings the total service numbers thus far to 20,921 screened and 5,407 (25.8%) referred. This 60 day bench mark also starts the screening phase for the study and within the next 30 days Conexus we will begin delivering eye exams and glasses through the activities of the study! This has been an exciting Fall season for Conexus and those we serve!
As VisioCheck is making its way across Virginia it’s great to hear how we’re impacting schools and students. Thanks to our nurse partners for their support and for trusting Conexus to be a partner they can count on to provide services and results beyond expectations.
