March 19, 2013 (Siteki, Swaziland) The team that has come to visit Dr. Pons here in Swaziland includes five of us from Dean McGee Eye Institute: Dr. Brad Farris is a neuro-ophthalmologist who has been leading international work for DMEI for over a decade. Dr. James Simonson is the director of anesthesia at the McGee Eye Surgery Center and has come along to help advance, develop and support anesthesia efforts at both RFM Hospital in Manzini and Good Shepherd Hospital in Siteki. Two DMEI senior residents: Drs. Jacquelyn Jetton and Drew Bailey are here as part of the residency’s annual international ophthalmology trip. Dr. Jetton will be continuing on in international ophthalmology through a new fellowship in Global Eye Care at DMEI and will be spending two more months here in Africa next year. Dr. Bailey will be staying on at DMEI in a glaucoma subspecialty fellowship next year. And I came along too – to blog! J
