With the ASCRS ASOA Annual Meeting in Las Vegas quickly approaching, we are looking forward to reuniting in person with you in July! Learn more about how and where to interact with the Foundation below:
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.

During Opening General Session, the Foundation will debut a new video showcasing the incredible impact that you make possible! If you can’t attend the session live, the video will be available post-meeting on the Foundation’s website and social media platforms. We are thankful to the The Carlin Company for their support in producing this year’s video.
