COMINGS AND GOINGS
It is with deep gratitude that we say farewell to two board members, Angie Verdun and Dr. Pacita Aducayen. Angie was with us from the beginning, formulated our nonprofit status and kept us on the straight and narrow pathway to being financially sound. Dr. Aducayen joined us as our medical director and was instrumental in assisting us on our missions and with acquiring medications for our work.
In return, we welcome new board members Dr. Brian Callister as our Medical Director, Dave Vasquez to lead our hearing program and Adrian Tatarakis who will head our vision program.
