Lions Clubs of District 20-YI donate $250,000 to support ophthalmic research, services at SUNY Health Science Center
The Lions Clubs of District 20-YI has pledged $250,000 to support and further ophthalmic research at the State University of New York Health Science Center at Syracuse. The contribution, to be paid over three years, was made to the Center’s Vision 2000, a fundraising campaign of the Health Science Center Foundation at Syracuse, Inc.
“I am very excited to have the support of the Lions for Vision 2000,” said Dr. John Hoepner, chair of the University Vision Care & Research Centers at the Health Science Center. “It is certainly an honor to have the support of such a highly-recognized organization whose members work so hard to help people all over the world.”
Ophthalmic research at the Health Science Center at Syracuse is conducted through its University Vision Care & Research Centers. The Centers are multifaceted and draw upon the expertise and dedication of dozens of leading physicians and research scientists to provide medicine with advances in research, innovation in patient care and quality instruction in the practice of ophthalmology.
Vision 2000, with a goal of $1.2 million, is designed to increase the awareness, recognition and funding for the advancement of ophthalmology research and services at the Health Science Center at Syracuse.
