The President's Corner

mccauleyDr. Matt McCauley is the current president of the society.  He shares these articles for the benefit of the community.

Think about your work . . . your job, your work environment, your staff, co-workers and your patients.   

Why do we work?   Why is there work at all?

Who is your boss?  What guides your key decisions everyday at your work?

You'll want to tune in to this video to hear Dr. McCauley's wonderful talk at the 2018 AAO COS Prayer Breakfast.

COS Board member Jeff Taylor and his family recently returned from the Bahamas where they helped Dr. Duranda Ash with relief efforts after Hurricane Dorian.  Each day they screened 100s of patients living in one of the evacuee shelters in Nassau, Bahamas.   

A friend of Duranda's produced this short video to show an outreach conducted by Jeff, his family, and Duranda and her staff to Hurricane Dorian evacuees at the Kendal Isaacs Gym in Nassau, Bahamas. 

Thank you for your support!

If you didn't make it to AAO in San Francisco, past COS President, Dr. Stan Pletcher, was our featured speaker at the AAO 2019 COS Prayer Breakfast.  Dr. Pletcher's title was "Eyes for Mission - Mission for Eyes," and we were inspired by the breadth of stories of doctors who have found a variety of ways to use the gifts God has given them to minister to and help others.  He shared his own personal journey as well, sharing the lessons he has learned on the way and sharing about how God uses us during different seasons of life.

If you are considering a new mission in your life or if you are in the middle of a mission, take time to listen to Dr. Pletcher tell us about 7 models of mission ophthalmologists can get involved with....

 portland4The 40th annual meeting was certainly a huge blessing to me. I was awed by the spirit there and thankful to meet many new attendees. We were all blessed by the support from so many exhibitors. My favorite sessions included hearing the missionaries on Thursday, our mission's day on Thursday, praying on Saturday morning with a great small group, hearing the resident testimonies, Nathan Greene's wonderful talk on Saturday and hearing Scott Lawrence on Sunday AM. Dan Siapco's band, SardiuS was unbelievable and brought our worship out to very deep level. I'd vote for having them every year!
Portland was definitely weird so I'm guessing that they don't have too much to worry about keeping their slogan going. Add a comment
