Meet Sheindel IfrahAdministrative Coordinator, Website Designer
As a part of the ICF, Sheindel aims to make corneal transplants a more meaningful experience by fostering relationships between recipients and donor families. It has been rewarding for her to be a part of a practice and a foundation that aim to bring excellent eye care and vision restoration treatment to other communities. Sheindel has also designed and developed the website for the ICF.
Having observed the barriers preventing donor recipients from receiving required organs due to race, ethnicity and culture of the recipient, involvement in the ICF has allowed Sheindel to begin to see the first stages of widespread access to proper medical care that everyone deserves, something that inspires her in her pursuement of a career in medicine.
