In 2008 The Foundation began to develop Chapters across the United States. Some Chapters will focus on providing education and support group activities to patients and their family members, where others will organize and host a variety of fundraising events to raise needed funds for the Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation.
The Connecticut Chapter was formed in 2008 and is based in Glastonbury, Connecticut, hometown to OIUF board member, Gregory Hughes. Since its inception the chapter has provided needed outreach, education, fundraising and support in Connecticut and beyond through a “Walk for Vision,” house parties and support groups. Greg welcomes the opportunity to answer any of your questions and encourage you to volunteer and or participate in chapter activities. He can be reached at email@example.com.
The California Chapter was formed in 2011 and is based in San Diego to provide needed support to individuals in Southern California living with Ocular inflammatory disease. If you are interested in volunteering or participating in chapter activities, please contact Patricia Bartlett, Uveitis patient and OIUF San Diego Chapter Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org or 858-759-0574.
