James and Bessie Pappas Lecture

The annual James and Bessie Pappas Lecture is made possible through the generosity of James and Bessie Pappas, friends and advocates of the Department of Ophthalmology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Through the Pappas’ visionary gift, we are able to bring leading scientists to Northwestern, providing invaluable opportunities to share the latest discoveries and ideas that serve to advance scientific knowledge, medical education and patient care. The support of individuals like James and Bessie Pappas is vital to both the continued advancement of cutting-edge insight into the causes of ophthalmic diseases, as well as the development of new treatments for the most devastating diseases of the eye. We thank the Pappas family for their commitment, leadership and friendship. Their foresight and philanthropy will have a dramatic impact in furthering vision health for generations to come.
