Academy to Collect Donations for Haiti in Chicago2010_mtg_logo

Since the earthquake, the Academy has been working to assist our colleagues in Haiti in the rebuilding of their practices and the delivery of quality eye care. This year in Chicago, we invite you to bring items to donate—either ophthalmic equipment or current educational books or journals. Ophthalmic equipment must be in good working order. Equipment should be locally serviceable. Educational materials must be current and in good condition. The Academy cannot accept pharmaceuticals. To donate, bring your item(s) to the International Center (Booth 2480, Hall A) at the meeting, along with a completed Haiti Donation Form.
