U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper watches as Medical Assistant Patrick James performs an eye exam on diabetes patient Juanita Hereford at the Vine Hill Community Clinic, operated by the Vanderbilt School of Nursing to meet the needs of underserved patients in the community. The exam is performed using a special camera that records the images for review by an off-site specialist who can quickly catch diabetic eye problems.
