      Dear all,

      These international clinical volunteer opportunities, which include

      be of interest to many people on this e-mail list. Unite For Sight
      volunteers prescribe eyeglasses, screen for eye disease and coordinate
      and fund diagnosis, treatment, and surgery by doctors. Volunteers also
      implement Train the Trainer programs for teachers and educate children
      and adults about eye health and ways to prevent blindness.

      All persons over the age of 18 are welcome to apply for these volunteer
      opportunities, including prehealth students, medical students, optometry
      students, public health professionals, ophthalmologists, optometrists,
      physicians,corporate professionals, graduate students, nurses, retired
      professionals, and any others with an interest in international service.
