Who we are

Project Theia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization named after the Greek goddess of sight and heavenly light. We are focused on delivering specialized surgical care, training surgeons, and providing sustainable healthcare in low-income, middle-income, and developing countries.

Katie Duncan, MD and Jenny Yu, MD are the co-founders of the organization. Both are fellowship trained Oculoplastic surgeons who are experienced in trauma and reconstructive surgeries. The team will include other facial plastic surgeons, ophthalmic surgeons, nurses, and anesthetists. For each country of service, the members of the team will vary based on the local needs.
