We are excited and looking forward to our 2015 Visionary Awards Gala on April 25th, where it will be our honor to recognize Dr. Napoleone Ferrara, an internationally known and pioneer in treatment of Macular Degeneration, with the Leslie Dana Gold Medal. This medal has been awarded by the Society since 1925 and the list of honorees is a “Who’s Who” in ophthalmology. It will also be an opportunity to recognize Alice Conway, a blind lawyer and Assistant to the General Counsel at Monsanto with our Legacy of Leadership Award and the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial with our Community Partnership Award for their special programming for children and adults who are blind or visually impaired and their families.
The Society is honored to have so many supporters step forward as Chairs and Co-Chairs of the evening, with a special thanks to Drs. Sherine & Raj Apte for serving as evening Chairs. There are an additional 14 individuals/couples supporting as Co-Chairs. I want to make a special thank you to Dr. Daniel Joseph, a prominent Retina Specialist for his support as a Co-Chair, as we learned of his commitment after going to print with our invitation, Thank you Dr. Joseph.
