Dr. Pepose was recently presented with the President’s Volunteer Service Award for his work with EyeCare America .
Dr. Pepose volunteers with EyeCare America to restore vision for seniors.
Eyecare America, a program of the Foundation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, is one of the largest public service programs in American medicine. In Missouri, over the last 30 years, the program has helped more than 10,519 people obtain access to medical eye care and resources.
The President’s Volunteer Service Award is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition.
“Thank you for helping to address the most pressing needs in your community and our country,” wrote President Obama in a letter that accompanied the Award. “Your volunteer service demonstrates the kind of commitment to your community that moves America a step closer to its great promise.”
Congratulations, Dr. Pepose.
