Jaime Soria Viteri (Ecuador) representing the Ecuadorian Society of Ophthalmology is the 2019 recipient of the Richard & Chita Abbott Young Leader Award for his project “OftalmoEconomics”. He is also IAPB Latin America Regional Strategic Advisor.
Richard & Chita Abbott Young Leader Award is given to the best project in each future PAAO Leadership Development Program (LDP) class. This award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated support of their national ophthalmology society and the PAAO and has participated in leadership activities at the national, subspecialty, or supranational society level.
“OftalmoEconomics“ is a new section of OftalmoUniversity. Through this a space has been created in Spanish so that ophthalmologists who wish to start their private practice or grow it can access information on real cases and relevant published data. It is also a place to share successful experiences, tips, and recommendations.
