    ORBIS Plane at LGA

    On May 7, 8 and 9, ORBIS International, a humanitarian organization that operates a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art eye hospital installed inside an airplane, will be conducting a fund raising event at LaGuardia Airport. During this event, the ORBIS aircraft will be parked on the AOA near the Marine Air Terminal and prospective donors will be escorted to the aircraft for a lecture and tour.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Re: ORBIS Plane at LGA

    Just finished with my last patient and yes, I wanted to thank EMS before I saw his meat comment. I've been meaning to contact Orbis for a future mission but it would be my third and it may be something to do in the future.

    Orbis is a great organization. One of my colleagues and fellow residents just flew with them to a province in China and he raved about it.

    My wife and I have done similar 'missions' to Torreon Mexico, where we examined and treated a few hundred patients a day. The partner in our practice just did a similar mission in Nicaragua.
    I did it twice but with a different eye organization. It's one of the best experiences ever, like a working vacation.

    I'm trying to go on either the Saturday afternoon or the Sunday.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.
