Message from the PAOF Chair

Apr 27, 2021From the PAOF Chair

Dear Colleagues:

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 Tribute Program provides an opportunity to individuals to honor a friend or colleague for her/his contributions to Ophthalmology in the Americas with a significant donation in an amount of USD $ 500 or higher. There is no better way to honor or congratulate someone on an important event or milestone than by making a Tribute donation in their name

The Tribute is published in the monthly Pan-American newsletter eVision, and on the Tribute Wall of the Pan-American’s website. The Honoree will receive a beautiful Tribute letter with a message of good wishes on your behalf.

Please contact me at [email protected] for more information. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to honor one another.
