Sharing of Awards of ICO International Fellowship

Zhao Wei – Guangzhou Children’s Hospital
 
This is Zhao Wei from Guangzhou Children’s Hospital, P.R.C. I was granted a three-month ICO Fellowship Award in Pediatric Ophthalmology at Wheaton Eye Clinic in Wheaton, Illinois, USA from September 1, 2010 to November 30, 2010. At the end of Fellowship, I must offer my heartfelt thanks to you for your generous subsidies.
 
During the three months, I observed surgery for two days and worked in clinic for three days every week. The main contents is to study the common practice of diagnose and treatment of pediatric eye disease. After three months of study I got an advanced learning about the theoretical knowledge and operating techniques of strabismus, which will benefit for my future career. In the middle of October, I got a chance to attend the AAO meeting in Chicago, I learned some new ideas and gained a good deal of enlightenment. At the same time, my supervisor and teachers gave me many chances to experience the different culture, for example, concert, football game, baby shower, activities in church. It is really a pleasurable and unforgettable experience.
 
I truly appreciate your financial aid. I can feel the love from both the people I met in Wheaton Eye Clinic and your foundation. I think the transfer of love is an endless process, as the beneficiary of your love, I will not only treasure up it, but also transfer it to more patients.  
 
Sincerely yours,
 
Zhao Wei
