March 12, 2014 (Oklahoma City) - I'm ba-a-a-ck!

The Dean McGee Eye Institute's Global Eye Care Program (GECP) will be returning to Swaziland for another eye care mission trip leaving tomorrow. We are joining the Bethany Nazarene GO team for a fourth year, and look forward to evolving plans laid out in previous trips. In addition to the educational and clinical exchange program and the HIV/AIDS Task Force work, this year will include planning meetings with a national coalition of eye care providers, philanthropic organizations and Ministry of Health representatives to finalize and adopt a vision care plan for the country. Drafted by the GECP, the National Eye Care Plan adopts the tenets of the World Health Organization's VISION2020 Plan to eliminate preventable blindness in Swaziland. We'll keep you posted on developments as we go along...our flight leaves OKC tomorrow morning!

I wish everyone on the trip a safe and productive journey. The need is so great, and it is gratifying to know that you are working with National Authorities to tackle the problems there. I hope to join you some day.
