Volunteers Needed! Help your SIG at Academy 2017 Chicago

Published November 7, 2017

Dear SIG member,

The Nutrition, Disease Prevention and Wellness SIG and the Vision in Aging SIG are joining up to manage a booth in the 2017 exhibit hall in Chicago. This will be an excellent opportunity to further our missions of promoting excellence in the care of patients through nutritional support for eye diseases and disorders and to promote knowledge of vision in aging and eye care for older adults. We are excited to participate in this new program by the Academy, but we need your help! Please email me by September 1st if you are interested in volunteering an hour or more of your time to help us staff our booth. Please review the dates/times below and let me know what time slot(s) you can commit to covering. I will continue to keep you posted with updates as they are available. As always, please feel free to email with any suggestions or questions.

The hours to cover are:
Wednesday, October 11, 2017: 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM (Opening night Welcome Reception) 
Thursday, October 12, 2017: 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM 
Thursday, October 12, 2017: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM (Attendee Reception) 
Friday, October 13, 2017: 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

We may also need volunteers to help set up between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM on Wednesday, October 11. More details will be determined as AAO Chicago approaches.
