      Dear all,

      These international volunteer opportunities will likely
      be of interest to many people on this e-mail list. Unite For Sight
      (www.uniteforsight.org) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and
      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 undergraduate students, optometry and medical
      students, optometrists, ophthalmologists, public health professionals,
      physicians, corporate professionals, graduate students, teachers,
      nurses, retired professionals, and any others with an interest in
      international service.
