Salus University’s Hearing Vision Balance Clinic (HVBC) recently treated its first patient, Stephen Bachovin, U.S. Air Force veteran and Coordinator of Veterans Programming at Community College of Philadelphia’s Veterans Resource Office.
The Veterans Readiness Initiative (VRI), a joint effort between Salus University’s Osborne College of Audiology and Pennsylvania College of Optometry, with external partners Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center Rehabilitation Medicine Services, and Veterans Resource Centers at Community College of Philadelphia and Montgomery County Community College, provides community screening events for veterans to identify potential vision, auditory or balance issues. If problems are detected during the screening, or if a comprehensive exam is needed, veterans are referred to Salus’ HVBC.
