Hello. Molly and I are proud member of the US Priory of the Order of St John. We are pleased to support the Eye Hospital in Jerusalem, staff, and patients, and work together to prevent curable blindness.
Under the leadership of our Hospitaller, Dr David Verity, we have supported postgraduate MasterClasses, especially in his field of oculoplastics. In addition, in the past we have funded some steps for St John to gain accreditation under a US quality standard.
In the future, we are looking forward to supporting research, given the unique genetic composition of our patient population.
All of these efforts have brought us tremendous satisfaction to support continuing medical education, and to overall support the mission of St John, especially in the Holy Land.

The St John Ophthalmic Association was established in 2015 and is formed of clinicians, nurses, managers, and IT and healthcare professionals from across the world. The group exists to coordinate the post-graduate ophthalmic activities of the Order of St John, uniting supporters from all professional walks of life in support of The Order of St John.
The SOA not only supports the strategy of the Hospital Board in advancing teaching, training and research across all branches of the St John Eye Hospital Group (SJEHG), but also supports the developing St John Ophthalmic Hospital in Soweto, Johannesburg.Bookmark
