ASCRS Foundation at the 2021 ASCRS ASOA Annual Meeting

The ASCRS Foundation is excited to reunite with our supporters at the ASCRS ASOA Annual Meeting!

You are vital to our domestic and international work in treating preventable cataract blindness and supporting physician education. Check out where you can interact with the Foundation during the meeting:

Presentation of the 2021 Chang-Crandall Humanitarian Award
The ASCRS Foundation is proud to recognize Geoff Tabin, MD and Sanduk Ruit, MD as Co-Winners of the 2021 Chang-Crandall Humanitarian Award. The award will be presented during ASCRS Opening General Session on Saturday, July 24, 2021. Endowed by a generous gift from David and Victoria Chang, the ASCRS Foundation's Chang-Crandall Humanitarian Award was established to honor and recognize outstanding humanitarian work around cataract blindness. The Foundation renamed its highest honor in 2020 in recognition of Alan S. Crandall, MD's exemplary life and commitment to charitable service.
