Dr. Dorothy supports many charities! Each charity has a special focus on the delivery of eye, healthcare, and optical services to those in need.
Dr. Hitchmoth: "My travel around the world and my participation in the Harvard Health-Albert Schweitzer Fellowship helped shape my desire to help others in need. I often ask others to remember the words of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, "think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight".
Dr. Hitchmoth was selected for fellowship by the Harvard Health-Schweitzer over 23 years ago. Her original fellowship program created a pathway to eye care services for the children and mothers who accessed services through five different Boston area battered women's shelters The program continues to be supported by the New England Eye Institute in Boston, MA. Dr. Hitchmoth is a now a "Schweitzer for Life" and is dedicated to perpetuating the work and philosophy of Dr. Albert Schweitzer. She currently services on the Dartmouth School of Medicine Schweizter Fellowship Board.
