NY Times, Today Show Reference Basch Sleep, Vision Research

Jim Dwyer of The New York Times had a story about a program based on research by Charles Basch on the impact of poor vision on school performance. The program, run by the Children's Health Fund, performs vision tests and distributes eyeglasses to low-income students in three schools, including P.S. 39, where TC's Office of School and Community Partnerships is working with Basch and the Children's Health Fund to coordinate health services. P.S. 39 is one of TC's REACH (Raising Educational Achievement Coalition of Harlem) schools. Here is a link to Dwyer's story:
