VOSH/International introduces two new programs

 

The charitable organization working to eliminate preventable blindness by the year 2020, VOSH/International, recently unveiled two new programs to help reach this goal, which has been established in partnership with the World Health Organization.

 

The VOSH Corps program was developed in collaboration with the Brien Holden Vision Institute and modeled after the American Peace Corps (an international volunteer organization). It is also supported by Optometry Giving Sight. The program will recruit graduates from North American schools of optometry to serve in emerging optometric institutions around the world. They will initially serve as faculty and program development assistants and progressively be inducted into teaching positions over a two-year commitment.

Eye Teach is a teaching and mentoring program developed by the Brien Holden Vision Institute to expand the quality of optometric education worldwide. It will train faculty of optometric institutions and clinicians in the art and science of teaching and curriculum development through easily accessible seminars.

 

At the organization’s general meeting, held October 10–11 in Porto Rico, the new president, Dr. David McPhillips, was sworn in by outgoing president Dr. Ellis Potter.
