  • David G. Shulman, MD

    Dr. David G. Shulman, 78 of San Antonio, Texas, died August 7, 2021.

    A passionate advocate for patients and his profession for more than 40 years, Dr. David Shulman served as president of the Texas Ophthalmological Association and then as legislative chair for 20 more years. He was an Academy Council member, vice chair and then chair from 2002 to 2003, while also serving on the Board of Trustees. Dr. Shulman devoted time to the OPHTHPAC committee, the EyeCare America State Societies Advisory Committee and multiple programs on behalf of State Affairs. 

    In 2011 he was honored with the Academy’s Senior Achievement Award and in 2013 he received the Hall of Fame Award from the Secretariat for State Affairs for his commitment to preserving and protecting quality eye care and patient safety in Texas.

    “David was humble and understated, though he was a giant amongst Texas ophthalmologists,” said colleague Dr. Sidney Gicheru. “His kind deeds included personally funding young ophthalmologists’ first trips to DC for Congressional Advocacy Day. He will be sorely missed.”
