The chairperson of the 2017 Prevent Blindness Person of Vision Committee is Marc Ferrara, CEO, Information Services Division of Jobson Medical Information. All proceeds from the event will go to support the sight-saving programs from Prevent Blindness.

“For many years, Marge Axelrad has volunteered her time and energy to helping our organization in its mission to protect the gift of sight,” said Hugh R. Parry, president and CEO of Prevent Blindness. “We are thrilled to honor her for her years of dedication and service to not only Prevent Blindness, but the entire vision care community!”
