Chicago-Hugh R. Parry has been named chairman of the board of AMD Alliance International (AMDAI), an international organization dedicated exclusively to macular disease.

Parry, president and CEO of Prevent Blindness America, was appointed during the annual board meeting of AMDAI in New York on April 16, 2010.

AMDAI is a consortium of 70 of the world's leading vision, seniors, and research organizations in 25 countries. Its goal is to bring knowledge, hope, and help to individuals and families around the globe affected by age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
