The Frederick C. Blodi Lecturer History

This lecture, established in 2013 by the Council, is named in honor of Frederick C. Blodi MD, who served as Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa for 45 years. In that capacity, he recruited and promoted talented students and faculty, enjoying their individual successes. Dr. Blodi embodied the spirit of the AOS. This lectureship honors a mid-career AOS member and will be delivered at the annual meeting. The topic is of the presenter’s choice and should be an overall perspective of a particular topic. A manuscript should be prepared in conjunction with the lecture which will be published in the Transactions of the American Ophthalmological Society. This lectureship may be renamed, depending on a vote by the Council.
