Message from the PAOF Chair

Dec 18, 2019From the PAOF Chair, PAOF

My Dear Colleagues,

I would like to end this year with a note of gratitude to all my colleagues, friends and family who have supported the Pan-American and its education and prevention of blindness initiatives. 

This year the Pan-American launched several new programs which we have been featuring in our eVision and PAAO NOW electronic bulletins.  I would like to thank those friends, colleagues and industry partners who generously support our educational programs year after year and for those new donors who came forward to fund these vital new programs.

All donations are greatly needed and appreciated, large or small.  Please click here to see our Supporting Donors Wall and click here to see our Circle of Vision Donors Wall.  With your support, the Pan-American is able to provide valuable advanced training opportunities, leadership training courses and special interest training such as how to get published in a scientific journal.

I close this year with gratitude in my heart and I look forward to 2020 with great anticipation as we continue to expand to fulfill the Pan-American’s mission of education, prevention of blindness and cultural exchange.

Happy holidays!

Dr. Jorge Valdez
PAOF Chair of the Board
