Dr. Hunter CherwekOur first guest is Dr. Hunter Cherwek, global ophthalmologist; Vice President, Clinical Services, of Orbis International. We will learn how an innovative nonprofit is continuing to treat patients and train doctors during the global pandemic.  Did you know at least one in seven people live with visual impairment or blindness that is completely avoidable. Often something as simple as getting a routine cataract surgery or a pair of glasses is all that is needed to change a person’s life. He will discuss the work that Orbis is doing to combat this issue.  For more information please visit www.orbis.org    


Dr. Doug OlsenOur second guest is Dr. Doug Olsen, MD; Chief Medical Officer Medicaid/CHIP, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. He will discuss the importance of the flu vaccine and how CMS is helping eligible children and teens obtain health coverage through Medicaid and CHIP. Many parents may have held off on getting immunizations or postponed medical appointments for their children due to COVID-19. For uninsured kids in families with limited incomes, Medicaid and CHIP offer eligible children and teens up to age 19 access to routine and emergency care, eye exams, dental visits, mental health services, prescriptions, and other care. And this gives parents peace of mind. Eligibility is dependent on household size and income and varies by state. On average, a family of four earning up to $50,000 a year or more may qualify for Medicaid or CHIP.   To get more information, call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669) or visit the “Find Coverage for Your Family” section on InsureKidsNow.gov
