As we announced in the last Conformer, ican was awarded a grant by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Human Genetics Network (MARHGN) to develop an informational brochure about anophthalmia/microphthalmia. Thanks to the support and efforts of the Albert Einstein Medical Center Department of Genetics and their able summer intern, Tanya M. Bardakjian, the first draft of the brochure is completed. The goal of the brochure is to provide brief and accurate information about anophthalmia/microphthalmia and offer resources for individuals to contact to obtain more information and support.
A copy of the brochure is included with this issue of the Conformer for your review. Please send your comments/suggestions to:
Through the generous sponsorship of Arthur C. Perry, M.D., Medical Director of Integrated Orbital Implants, INC in San Diego ican has joined the Internet with a Web page.
