To highlight his limitless generosity and commitment to IRIS Mundial projects, the Jean-Pierre Tchang Award was created in 2009 to reward the volunteer that stands out in any given year. In 2011, at a yearly gathering of IRIS Mundial volunteers in Montreal, the Jean-Pierre Tchang Award was presented to Dr. Brigitte Marchand, Optometrist. On behalf of IRIS Mundial and the less fortunate, we would like to say “Thank you Brigitte!”

It is with great sadness that we learned of the premature death of Brigitte on September 24, 2011. We dedicate this award in her honour.
