Doctors and Charitable Organizations Co-Sponsor UIC Teaching Seminar
Ophthalmologists To Instruct Medical Residents on Proven Low-Cost Cataract Surgical Techniques
By: Levinson Communications
Co-sponsoring the teaching seminar are SEE International, FOCUS and The University of Illinois College of Medicine - Department of Ophthalmology. SEE International is a nonprofit humanitarian organization based in Santa Barbara, California that provides accessible vision care services to underserved communities internationally and in the United States. FOCUS, based in Barrington Hills, Illinois is dedicated to promoting eye care in Haiti which is desperately needed after the recent earthquake. Dr. Sondheimer is especially involved in donating his expertise to the underserved as he and his colleagues have frequently traveled to impoverished countries around the world to provide eye surgeries at no cost to patients.
According to Dr. Sondheimer, "This is a unique opportunity for me to return to my medical school, instruct medical students, and hopefully inspire the students to embrace and pursue national and international humanitarian efforts throughout their professional careers."
Members of the media are welcome to interview any of the three doctors who are leading the seminar. Contact David Lewis at email@example.com
