President Trump is scheduled to be in Philadelphia on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at The National Constitution Center (NCC) in the Independence Mall area. Increased police presence is anticipated in Center City throughout Tuesday afternoon and evening. Please allow extra time if you are going to Wills Eye. Please be advised of area street closures to vehicles beginning at 1:00PM on Tuesday 9/15. Pedestrian access will also be limited in the area. This is subject to change and area restrictions, which could widen, will be lifted once the President departs the NCC. There are also demonstrations planned for Tuesday 9/15 around Independence Mall as well as City Avenue.

The current healthcare plan regarding eye health is based on data extrapolated from the WHO, and not specific to Rwanda.  While it may seem harmless and even logical to use data extrapolated from nearby countries with similar climates, smaller studies have proven that these countries can have differing causes of visual impairment.
