Dr Natalie Briggs joins Vision Aid Overseas from the Royal College of Surgeons of England, where she was executive director of the education department. She replaces Tym Marsh, who has retired after 10 years at the charity. "My experience with the Royal College gave me national and international project management experience in professional education and skills development," said Briggs. "This will be crucial for VAO's objective to support sustainable eyecare programmes in developing countries. One of my priorities is to introduce a project framework that will enable the organisation to implement that objective."
