Two SCCO doctors were recently interviewed for NPR's Los Angeles station KPCC on baby boomers, their aging vision and the availability of optometrists to provide care. Reporter Andrea Bernstein interviewed, Rebecca L. Kammer, O.D., associate professor and chief, Mary Ann Keverline Walls Low Vision Rehabilitation Center, Eye Care Center (ECC), at SCCO; and Director of Admissions Jane Ann Munroe, O.D.

She spoke to the special vision care needs of patients who have partial sight and the resources available to assist them. Dr. Munroe confirmed that optometrists are available to meet the vision needs of an aging population.
Doctors Kammer and Munroe were interviewed on SCCO's Fullerton campus on, Monday, February 17. The airdate for the interview will be announced soon.
