East Hill Family Medical Inc's
Amazing Race is On!
HEALTHY DISCOVERIES ARE WAITING AT EAST HILL FAMILY MEDICAL!
East Hill Family Medical, Inc. is a federally qualified community health center dedicated to serving the population of Cayuga County. Our mission is to ensure the availability and accessibly of quality healthcare to every individual. In some way, everyone most likely knows someone who benefits from our health services, whether neighbors, coworkers, or friends. By participating in this year's race -- as a competitor, station, sponsor, or volunteer -- you'll be helping us to help them.
Proceeds from the 2018 East Hill’s Amazing Race will help support the purchase of a RetinaVue Network, which will enable East Hill providers to improve management of patients with diabetes. The RetinaVue Network will allow for accurate detection of diabetic retinopathy (diabetic eye disease) as part of a patient’s routine visit.
Diabetic retinopathy affects blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue called the retina that lines the back of the eye. It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness among working-age adults.
