June 26, 2015, marked the "silver anniversary" of the George K. Kambara, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professorship, the centerpiece of our annual Alumni/Residents' Day. This program provides a forum for our residents to present clinical cases and research projects, and our faculty to present clinical and basic science research, as well as updates on current practice.

We were privileged to welcome the 25th Kambara Professor, pediatric ophthalmologist Terri L. Young, MD, MBA, Peter A. Duehr Professor and chair of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison, Wisconsin. Dr. Young delivered an outstanding lecture on the topic of congenital glaucoma.

Lecturing faculty members included Robert W. Williams, PhD, UTHSC chair of Genetics, Genomics and Informatics, Vanessa M. Morales-Tirado, PhD, assistant professor of Ophthalmology, and Julie K. Calderwood, MD, instructor in Pediatric Ophthalmology. The event was directed by Hiatt Professor of Ophthalmology and HEI Residency Program Director Natalie C. Kerr, MD, FACS, and organized by Associate Professor and HEI Special Events Director Mary Ellen Hoehn, MD.
