(PRESS RELEASE) ORLANDO, FL — The American Academy of Optometry Foundation announces Jonathan D. Lam, MD, OD as this year’s recipient of the Hopkins Comprehensive Eye Care Award. Dr. Lam is a primary care/ocular disease resident at the Chinle Comprehensive Health Care Facility in Chinle, Arizona.

Douglas W. Hopkins, OD, FAAO, was a leader within the Primary Care Section of the Academy who died unexpectedly in 2007. In his honor, friends and colleagues established the Douglas W. Hopkins Primary Care Fellowship Fund. With their generosity and that of Doug’s widow, Roberta, the fund quickly became fully endowed, and the first award was issued in 2012.

The award is intended to promote the practice and development of comprehensive eye care by providing incentive and support to talented optometric residents who demonstrate a passion and commitment to further clinical experience, research, and education.

Of the applicants who applied, Jonathan presented an impressive resume of experience in clinical research, volunteer service, and lecture presentations.
