  Gary W. Abrams Endowed Lectureship in Ophthalmology

Gary W. Abrams, MD, is the former department chair and the David Barsky, M.D. Professor of Ophthalmology at the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit. He served as ophthalmology faculty member at the Medical College of Wisconsin from 1980 to 1992 and as vitreoretinal section head from 1988 to 1992. He has been president of ARVO and chair of the ARVO Foundation for Eye Research.
 
As a tribute to our friend and colleague and in recognition of his educational excellence in the area of vitreoretinal surgery, MCW has established the Gary W. Abrams Endowed Lectureship. This lectureship will be permanently endowed through efforts of the vitreoretinal eye alumni and the Eye Institute faculty. The inaugural lecture was presented by Dr. Abrams at the Eye Institute Annual Symposium in 2015.

Each subsequent year, MCW will invite a distinguished guest speaker from the vitreoretinal community to present the Gary W. Abrams Endowed Lecture at the annual Midwinter Retina Symposium sponsored by the Retina Section in MCW's Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences.
 
This year’s distinguished Abrams Lecturer is George A. Williams, MD, who completed his fellowship training in retinal and vitreous diseases at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1984.
