ARVO Foundation is looking for members to serve as meeting mentors for visiting researchers from developing countries attending the ARVO Annual Meeting. As a meeting mentor, you will have the ability to influence the visiting researcher's experience before, during and after the ARVO Annual Meeting. Meeting mentor requirements include:

  • Communicate with the visiting researcher prior to the Annual Meeting, acquainting them with the meeting and suggest how to plan their time.
  • Help the researcher navigate the meeting
  • Introduce the researcher to other ARVO members with similar interests
  • Help create connections that will go beyond the meeting
