To welcome you back to the organization, the POS is inviting you, as a guest of the Society, to attend one monthly meeting of your choice. Meetings are held September through February (2019 - 2020 Academic Calendar) at the Allegheny County Medical Society, located on the North Side of Pittsburgh. This invitation is extended to members who have let their membership lapse for 2+ years or to those that have never been a member. 

          At each monthly meeting, we invite distinguished guest faculty from around the country representing varied sub-specialties to present lectures and participate in Grand Rounds.  Our meetings provide an excellent opportunity to engage in a smaller group setting with the invited speakers and fellow POS members in a relaxed setting. Social time is always built into our meetings for the opportunity to meet and get to know one another.  CME credit is provided.  

          We are fortunate as an organization to serve a vibrant greater ophthalmology community here in Pittsburgh and welcome your return as an integral part of that community.   To take advantage of this opportunity and to register, please contact Nadine Popovich, administrator, who can assist and answer questions you may have. Ms. Popovich can be reached at (412) 321-5030 or email to

          I hope your schedule permits you to join us and I look forward to welcoming as a renewed member!
