    2021 Secretariat Award Recipients

    Awards Committee

    The Secretariat Award is an annual award recognizing special contributions to the Academy and ophthalmology, as determined by Academy Senior Secretaries and Secretaries in their respective areas. It was created to increase opportunities for ophthalmologists to be recognized for contributions outside of the scope of the current Achievement Awards Program. Although the awards are given annually, they can be recognized for several years of service.
