On April 24th CVIM will conduct the 16th Annual Give Kids a Smile and Vision for the Future Day. Children, ages 1–18 will receive free comprehensive dental care and free vision screenings, all thanks to the compassionate hearts of many local professionals. The event will be held at the Pediatric Dental Care & Orthodontics offices in Grays Woods where their dentists and orthodontist will be joined by other local dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants to provide care to uninsured children. Exams, cleanings, fillings and more will all be provided for free at this one day event.
Dr. Marla Moon and the staff of Nittany Eye Associates Grays Woods provide vision screenings and additional vision care as needed. Volunteers will be on hand to register children and hand out goodie bags with toothbrushes, toothpaste, sunglasses and educational information. CVIM would like to thank the State College Kiwanis for their support of Give Kids a Smile and their dedication to children’s oral health.
Albrect Audiology is offering vouchers for the children to come to their facility for free hearing screenings as well.
If your child is currently having a dental issue do not wait until this event. Contact CVIM at 231-4043.
CVIM would also like to thank these partners for Give Kids A Smile Day: Colgate, Henry-Dental, Vision Benefits of America, and Dick Erdley - Harris Township Lions Club for their generous support.
Penn State and the United Way have teamed together to create a video and a story highlighting Centre Volunteers in Medicine. CVIM is a United Way partner and they generously help to support our Richard Madore Dental Clinic.
A special thank you to the entire team from the Penn State Office of Strategic Communications who produced the video. They spent weeks of production work putting the story and video together. We think this video and story capture much of what we do here very well.
Marathoners for Medicine officially became a group in 2010, but runners have been supporting CVIM since we opened our doors in 2003. Their efforts have raised hundreds of thousands of dollar to support the medically underserved in our community, and we are proud to host this event.
The Marathoners for Medicine began their 2020 season with a kickoff celebration at CVIM on Thursday, February 6th. Runners got a tour of the CVIM facility and enjoyed some camaraderie with their fellow runners. Watch Jaime Wright, coordinator of Marathoners for Medicine, as she joins the Kickoff Celebration.
Consider making a donation to a marathoner team or to an individual runner.
