Volunteer Promotional Opportunities



Thank you for your interest in our Volunteer Promotional Opportunites

 

Volunteering for EyeCare America helps your community and your profession. Join our team!


EyeCare America has just introduced a new way for ophthalmologists (who can't see EyeCare America patients due to a practice situation) to volunteer through its award-winning referral program. Those doctors can still support the worthwhile cause of preventing avoidable blindness by spreading the word about EyeCare America or helping to raise funds for it.

If you are interested in becoming a promotional volunteer for EyeCare America, please click on the VOLUNTEER button below, and fill out and fax back the volunteer form.

Volunteer

How you can help
If you are an ophthalmologist who can't see ECA patients, now you can volunteer for one or more of these activities:

  1. Send letters to the editor of your local publications, or press releases to local media;
  2. Distribute glaucoma risk factor cards and ECA program brochures in your office waiting room;
  3. Send letters to your local legislators extolling the virtues of the program (ECA can provide statistics relevant to
    the constituency);
  4. Speak on behalf of ECA at your local service club, hospital grand rounds, or other venues (ECA has presentations for your use);
  5. Recruit colleagues to volunteer;
  6. Display Tribute for Sight brochures in your office so patients
    and their families can make a donation in your honor.

Once an ophthalmologist becomes an EyeCare America promotional volunteer, their name is added to an existing database of spokespeople. Should a request come in from an area where a retired volunteer resides, the volunteer will be contacted by an EyeCare America staff member to determine their availability to fulfill this request. Additionally,  volunteers can take it upon themselves to create their own ways to promote the program in their region by writing letters to their local newspapers or TV stations, calling local groups or senior centers to find out the best way to provide valuable information about EyeCare America.
