At the 2018 ASCRS-ASOA Annual Meeting, Aerie Pharmaceuticals challenged attendees to give $25,000 to the ASCRS Foundation to trigger an Aerie match of the same amount. And it worked! Aerie’s challenge spurred an avalanche of giving that produced over $53,000 in contributions in just a few days, including the match. This funding allowed the ASCRS Foundation and our volunteer surgeons to restore the sight of more than 200 patients last year.
Finally! The week of the 2018 ASCRS-ASOA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC is here. Our staff is excited to spend the next few days with attendees, during the excitement of almost peak cherry blossom bloom in Washington, DC.
