The ASCRS Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2020 Young Eye Surgeon International Service Grant. The grant’s purpose is to inspire young eye surgeons to become involved with global eyecare on a long-term basis. Grantees work with the ASCRS Foundation and its partner organizations on a customized international experience that will enable them to participate in developing world community eyecare programs, teaching opportunities, and healthcare systems. The ASCRS Foundation would like to thank the Grant Review Committee for their commitment in selecting the inaugural cohort and their work in helping to craft experiences designed to inspire global volunteer service. The ASCRS Foundation and the society’s membership are active volunteers and program leaders in the effort to address global cataract blindness. This group of global changemakers will undoubtedly make a difference in communities around the world in 2020. Follow their volunteer experiences at www.ascrsfoundation.org.
