>> Teaching the How-to's of a Peds Eye Exam with the Pediatric and Ophthalmology Residents

· International

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela

I was invited to teach at the Cebu Velez General Hospital/ Cebu Institute of Medicine while visiting the Philippines this summer. We had a productive pediatric ophthalmology 'bootcamp' on the how-to's of a pediatric eye exam, critical diagnoses not to miss, and scenarios of when to refer to an ophthalmologist for further work-up and management. Equipped with these skills, I know this clever and enthusiastic group of young doctors will do good work in their communities!

Thank you Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Ophthalmology at Cebu Velez General Hospital for inviting me to speak.
