AAO 2020 Advocacy AwardwebThe residents of the UAB Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences were recently named the recipient of the 2020 Commitment to Advocacy Award given by the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

According to the AAO website, “The Commitment to Advocacy Award annually recognizes an ophthalmology training department and its leadership for outstanding support of the Academy’s Ambassador Program, which is a collaboration with state and subspecialty societies, along with training programs, to support members in training at the Mid-Year Forum.” The award recipient is recommended by the Secretariat and requires approval by the Boards of both the Academy and the AUPO.

Congratulations to our residents for this tremendous honor.
