ORLANDO, FL (August 27, 2020) - We are pleased to announce Charlotte Yiyi Wang, OD as this year’s recipient of the Hopkins Comprehensive Eye Care Award. Dr. Wang is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley School of Optometry, and primary care/community health resident at the Meredith W. Morgan University Eye Center.
Douglas W. Hopkins, OD, FAAO, was a leader within the Comprehensive Eye Care Section of the Academy who passed in 2007. In his honor, friends and colleagues established a fellowship fund. With their generosity and that of Doug’s widow Roberta, the fund quickly became fully endowed and the first award was issued in 2012.
The award is intended to promote the practice and development of comprehensive eye care by providing incentive and support to talented optometric residents who demonstrate a passion and commitment to further clinical experience, research, and education.
Dr. Wang presented an impressive resume of experience in clinical research, volunteer service, and lecture presentations, thus earning this prestigious award.
