Dedicated Volunteers Recognized by Zufall Health

Somerville, NJ – More than 100 dedicated volunteers who donate time, talents, and energy to Zufall Health were honored recently at the Fifth Annual Volunteer Appreciation event at the Bridgewater Manor. The volunteers provide a wide range of supportive services at the nonprofit community health center which offers affordable medical and dental care to patients in six New Jersey counties.

“We are most appreciative for the enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers who support our work improving health in the communities we serve,” said Eva Turbiner, Zufall’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Were it not for the volunteers who helped Dr. Bob Zufall and his wife Kathryn establish the health center nearly 30 years ago, we might not exist today.”

Vision to Learn Van Provides Free Vision Screening and Eyeglasses to Zufall Pediatric Patients

Just in time for back-to-school, the Vision to Learn Vision Van visited Zufall Health to provide free vision screening and free eyeglasses to Zufall pediatric patients aged 4 to 18. During the two-day event, 71 youngsters had their vision checked and 48 of them will receive glasses in about a week. For many families served by Zufall, affording eye care and glasses is financially out of reach. Nationally, more than 2 million children do not have the glasses they need to see the blackboard, participate in class, or read a book. Giving our patients the gift of sight and a chance to do better in school was made possible by the support of the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved and Vision to Learn.
