Janine Hobson’s thoughts on her first visit to Sumba as part of the SEP team.

May 17, 2015

SPM 22   Thank you to my amazing optometry friends Peter Lewis, Chris Katapodis, and Peter Stewart and the inspiring Mark Ellis for giving me the opportunity to experience Sumba and the beauty, humility and patience of the people. Sometimes in our busy world the ability to sit and wait is lost but I found the experience of the last week so refreshing.         The amazing work over the last eight years of the Sumba Eye Program and the Sumba Foundation nurses willingness to embrace learning made my job very easy. I look forward to many more rewarding years’ of teaching and testing eyes in Sumba.         Janine Hobson.
