BALTIMORE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / May 29, 2024 / ­KeraLink International (KLI), the only non-profit organization solely committed to eradicating corneal blindness in low- and middle-income countries, announces that Michelle Bockman has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer. In her new role, Bockman will shape the organization's future direction and lead her team in forging strategic partnerships with generous donors and impact investors who are also committed to restoring sight to the more than 12.7 million people with corneal blindness and to making significant advances in the prevention and early treatment of corneal injury and disease.

In prior roles, Bockman proved instrumental in executing strategy development, fundraising, and program implementation efforts, making her an ideal leader for KLI.

"We are thrilled to welcome Michelle as our new CEO," said Pamela J. Hall, Chair of the KLI Board of Directors. "Her extensive background in managing complex global projects and her passionate commitment to our cause are exactly what KLI needs to move forward."

"The prospect of uniting health care providers, technology innovators, philanthropists, and investors to collaborate on the front lines of eradicating corneal blindness is exciting," said Bockman. "Our organization's approach is an innovative yet sustainable way for prevention, early detection, and novel treatment of corneal injury, disease, and blindness. I am deeply privileged to have the opportunity to spearhead an organization that will undoubtedly have a profound global impact."
