HCP Co-founder Dr. Tabin travels to Tanzania

Dr. Geoff Tabin traveled to Tanzania in January to collaborate with Cornell-Weill's international program, work with local doctors to improve cornea transplant surgery, and meet with the Kilimanjaro Centre for Community Ophthalmology (KCCO) to begin planning for our Millennium Village Project assessment and intervention in Mbola later in the year.

The KCCO was established in Moshi, Tanzania, in late 2001 and is dedicated to the elimination of avoidable blindness through programs, training, and research focusing on the delivery of sustainable and replicable community ophthalmology services.
