Dear HKOS members,
Re: Invite submission of Public Education Materials
We are writing to invite your submission to the Metro Daily News Column. As you may know, this is one of our year objectives of HKOS Council to organize Public Education Program (PEP), aiming to increase public awareness of eye health and our profession. Currently, we are cooperating with a public relation company (PR) and publishing article with word count of 400-500 on alternate Wednesday. This has been operated since 1 Aug 2012 and you can review the published articles in our official website.
Your supports to us are essential for the success of PEP. HKOS member, who has attained FHKAM (Ophthalmology), is welcomed to submit one or more topics. Our editorial board members will evaluate these topics for publication. Doctor who submits the topic doesnˇ¦t need to write on the article. The PR will write for us on these topics. Of course, we are welcome for any well-written article originated from Doctor.
If you are interested to submit a topic or an article to the column, please note the following guidelines and send to us at email@example.com and our editorial board will review it for consideration. Doctor who submits the topic will have his/her name posted under the article and he/she will be responsible for the accuracy and content of that.
Thank you very much for your kind attention.
Dr YIP Pui-pui
(On behalf of PEP committee)
General guidelines for the articles will include (1) the articles are representing the standpoint of HKOS, not an individual; (2) the article is purely for educating the public, not for promoting an individual person or an institute; (3) the information in the articles must be just and correct; (4) no mentioning of specific company, brand, product model etc; (5) no mentioning of individual hospital, clinic, doctor; (6) no mentioning of an individual's effort in treating a patient (e.g. "I successfully removed his stone-hard cataract" is considered inappropriate); (7) word count is 500 words or less and (8) the editorial board may accept, reject or edit any article submitted.
