TERRE HAUTE —
Senior Education Ministries Inc. has scheduled Rise and Shine Dine with a Doc from 8 to 10 a.m. Friday at the Wabash Senior Citizen’s Center, 300 S. Fifth St., Terre Haute.
Dine with a Doc is a free event that welcomes the local senior public to hear the doctor of the month present an educational topic while attendees enjoy a complimentary meal. You do not need to be a member of the Senior Center to come and participate. Just bring a questioning mind, an appetite and perhaps a friend. Each doctor has graciously donated this time in effort to listen, hear and answer your questions while sharing a meal with you.
The Dine with a Doc program was designed to allow the seniors to get out of their homes, experience fellowship with their peers, extend their available financial resources, promote enhanced living and educate them (from a preventive standpoint) with the goal of ensuring their quality of life and providing them with the resources and information to make an informed decision.
Dr. Zachary Rossman, OD, is this month’s guest. Rossman is the newest addition to Ohio Valley Eye Institute. He graduated from the Indiana University School of Optometry in 2008 and completed an intensive post-graduate residency at the Indiana University School of Optometry in 2009, serving as visiting lecturer in primary care optometry. Rossman is the comprehensive optometrist and clinic director at the Terre Haute clinic. He provides routine patient care and medical management of eye disorders, including glaucoma, dry eyes, and pre- and post-operative care. He is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Indiana Optometric Association.
His professional interests include cataract surgery, Lasik & PRK surgery, glaucoma and dry eyes, urgent eye care and ocular disease management, consultative and pediatric optometry and sports vision.
Eye health is especially important for senior citizens to learn about and understand; many older Americans require some form of vision aid like prescription glasses or readers to see clearly.
A question-and-answer period will follow the discussion. Breakfast will be provided courtesy of Wyndmoor Retirement. There will be an opening prayer, and veterans in attendance will be recognized for their service and dedication, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Various health care providers will share information about their services and provide door prizes for participants to win.
Additionally provided is a free wellness clinic. Count on Fred Light and Meadows Home Health Care to provide blood sugar and blood pressure information.
