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 â€œThank you Brigitte!â€
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.
