Ben joined RestoringVision in March 2022. Ben works directly with a number of RestoringVision’s Global Access Program partners to ensure each organization receives new, high-quality eyeglasses which will help provide clear vision for people living in extreme poverty across the globe.
Ben first became passionate about global health after traveling to Haiti and Guatemala, where he learned about the gap in access to healthcare in certain areas across the globe. Following this realization, Ben began his studies at the Duke University’s Global Health Institute, during which he completed his thesis work on Chronic Kidney Disease in India. Since then, Ben has worked in the non-profit sector helping to address issues such as homelessness and access to mental health care, and now more recently the global vision crisis.
Ben holds a B.S. in General Biology from Abilene Christian University and an M.Sc. in Global Health from Duke University.
