Dover Health Providers Serve Global Community With Humanitarian Effort

Share Article

The Med-Tec Hearing Lab and Canterbury Vision Care Center, two local healthcare practices in Dover, NH, are pleased to bring their experience and service overseas to serve underprivileged communities in Nicaragua.

Dover's Med-Tec Hearing Lab and Canterbury Vision Care Center have long developed a solid reputation for providing hearing and vision care in the Dover, New Hampshire area, but these two partnering medical practices also serve a larger global community. Audiologist Bjorn Eriksen now offers his knowledge to the impoverished country of Nicaragua, traveling there twice yearly with a group of other medical professionals to treat children and adults in need.

Eriksen provides Nicaraguan locals with screenings and hearing aids for those experiencing hearing loss and other disorders. This service is unique among humanitarian medical services, considering the general perception that hearing aids are priced prohibitively for uninsured, impoverished third world countries. By bringing the assistive medical technology of Med-Tec Hearing Lab and Canterbury Vision Center to the people of Nicaragua, Eriksen believes he is giving back to the global community.

Dr. Donarum, a Doctor of Optometry and a member of the Canterbury Vision Care Center, also has a long history of providing humanitarian aide, and is pleased to work with Eriksen and other experts in the Nicaraguan community. Though their twice-yearly trips to the region allow for frequent check-ups, screenings, and minor treatments, it's clear that these visits cannot address many emergencies and other unpredictable conditions. For better continuity of care, Eriksen and Dr. Donarum are involved with efforts to establish permanent clinics, especially in remote villages that prove out of reach for many medical providers.

The Med-Tec Hearing Lab and Canterbury Vision Center are dedicated to offering comprehensive hearing and vision care and competitive prices for their hearing aids and glasses. Bjorn Eriksen and Dr. Donarum will continue bringing quality vision and hearing screenings and treatment to their loyal patients in Dover and to those less fortunate in Central America.
