NEW YORK, N.Y - January 18, 2018 - (Newswire.com)
The Chynn Family Foundation became established in 2009 by K. York Chynn, MD, Dr. Emil Chynn's father. He was a retired Attending Radiologist at St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center and former Division Chief of Neuroradiology. He is also a Clinical Professor of Radiology at Columbia University’s College of Physician’s & Surgeons. He taught medical students, interns, residents, and fellows for over 20 years.
The third Board Member is Dr. Emil Chynn, MD, FACS, MBA, a graduate of Columbia University, and has become an outstanding ophthalmologist in New York City. He specializes in laser vision correction, especially the newer, more advanced, non-cutting technique known as LASEK. Dr. Chynn is also the owner of Park Avenue LASEK.
The Chynn Family Foundation was supported financially with $1,000,000 of Dr. KY Chynn’s estate. This funding became based on the younger Dr. Chynn and his two sisters, Monica and Audrey agreeing to forgo the money as their inheritance. Also, the group used this sum of money instead to fund scholarships, awards, and other enterprises in the areas of education and to promote “filial piety.”

Who Is Emil Chynn?
Dr. Emil Chynn has significantly traveled in Ukraine and currently has a Refractive Fellow, Tetiana Dovzhuk, who is from Kiev. He has also worked at the most significant laser vision correction center in Ukraine for several years. Dr. Dovzhuk has set up a list of speeches for Dr. Chynn to give in Ukraine in Kiev, Kharkov, Sumy, and Liviv in the spring of 2017.
Furthermore, these talks were to groups of ophthalmologists about LASEK, business people who are MBA graduates about how to pursue business opportunities in the United States. Dr. Chynn has his MBA from New York University as well as his MD from Columbia University. Also, graduate students in English took part in these lectures, and other students studying business English about how to further their English studies overseas.
The Chynn Family Foundation will select three lucky people from Ukraine to come to New York City to study as interns for a two month period. Also, the foundation will provide free round-trip airfare and housing for this learning period. Because the interns will not have work status visas, they must be able to support their minor expenses, including food and minimal boarding costs.
