Foster A Missionary!

The Christian Ophthalmology Society announces the launch of the “Foster A Missionary” Program in August 2021.

Each year a missionary ophthalmologist is chosen by the COS board to be sponsored for one entire year by the society.  

Society members will support the efforts of the “fostered” missionary throughout the year by various means, one of which can be highlighting the missionary in their office and sharing with their patients also about what support can be given to help this missionary and their efforts.

The sponsored missionary for 2021 was announced at the 45th annual meeting in Alexandria, VA on Friday, August 6th.  The sponsored missionary for 2021-2022 is Dr. Wendy Hofman who is serving at Bethesda Hospital in Gabon, Africa.
