I am a former chair of the American Board of Ophthalmology former chair of the Ophthalmology Section of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a past-president of the American Association of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (APPOS). I have also been honored with a lifetime achievement award. I am currently the editor-in-chief of the Journal of AAPOS. As Vice Dean of Education I am responsible for overseeing the education program for the School of Medicine. I was also a strategist in the launching of Dukes partnership with the National University of Singapore (NUS) for a sister medical school based on the Duke medical curriculum.
