During the past year, COVID-19 has made a huge impact on our lives and how we interact with each other. As the more serious impacts of COVID are slowly starting to ease, I would like for you to take the time to consider this interaction by honoring one another. The Pan-American Ophthalmological Foundation has a wonderful method of doing this very thing with the Tribute Program.
“The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size.”

“Vaccines are one of our most important tools for preventing outbreaks and keeping the world safe. Unacceptably it’s often those who are most at risk – the poorest, the most marginalized, those touched by conflict or forced from their homes – who are persistently missed.”
– Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (Director- General, WHO)”
We have come to the end of a challenging year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Pan-American community for its unceasing support. As Mother Teresa said, “To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.”
