I’m so excited and honored to chair the PAOF from 2021-2024. After 29 years as an active member of the Pan-American Association and 14 years in the Executive Committee, I believe this is the right time to continue serving our beloved organization in this new role.
This is my last message as President of the Pan-American Ophthalmological Foundation which makes it very special. I have mixed feelings, first of joy and satisfaction for having contributed to the development of our Foundation.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted” said the Greek philosopher, Aesop. By helping each other, we are helping ourselves. By lifting up a family member, friend or colleague, we are lifting up ourselves.
