The Marmor Lecture in Arts and Ophthalmology provides engaging speakers on architecture, music, history and art at the American Academy of Ophthalmology's annual meeting.
The Academy seeks a high-level committee to identify future speakers, that will be attractive and entertaining, in the spirit of this annual lecture.
Bring cultural experiences and new ideas into our profession.
Criteria for selecting the speaker include:
- An eminent practitioner of the arts or history;
- An ability to link the area of arts expertise with medicine and preferably with ophthalmology;
- A strong and engaging public speaker with an ability to translate and present complex ideas and concepts into an accessible, relevant and interesting presentation.
The speaker should not, in general, be an ophthalmologist. On rare occasions, an ophthalmologist might fit the criterion of simultaneous true eminence in the arts.
How to Get Involved
Candidates for this committee should have broad cultural interests. Ideally, they would also have personal connections to a variety of institutions or individuals in cultural disciplines, and around the nation.
