      Dear all,

      These international health volunteer opportunities will likely 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, public
      health professionals, ophthalmologists, optometrists, physicians,
      corporate professionals, nurses, graduate students, retired
      professionals, and any others with an interest in international service.

      If you are interested in the volunteer opportunities listed below,
      please contact <mailto:JStaple@...> and consult
