Dr. Sonia Menchavez, OD, MPH
We’re down to the final 30 days! On Monday, March 16th, Sonja Menchavez donned the required protective gear to oversee the Installation of equipment in the new health center’s optometry clinic—the first ever in East Palo Alto.
Dr. Sonia Menchavez, who has a degree in optometry and a Master’s in Public Health from UC Berkeley, was asked to plan and direct optometry at Ravenswood. She is one of a new crop of optometrists with an interest in public health who believes the community clinic is the way to reach low-income populations that are at higher risk for diabetes and eye disease.
