New Horizons Forum’s keynote lecture is named for Drs. Henry and Frederick Sutro. In 2013, Glaucoma Research Foundation (GRF) received a $3 million bequest, the largest in its history, from Henry Adolph Sutro, DDS, of Oakland, California. The bequest established the Dr. Henry A. Sutro Family Grant for Research and the Drs. Henry and Frederick Sutro Memorial Lecture. The lecture is held each year at the Glaucoma 360 annual meeting.
Thomas M. Brunner, GRF President and CEO stated: “We are incredibly grateful to Dr. Sutro for this remarkable gift. His thoughtful contribution in honor of Dr. Iwach is particularly meaningful, as it is a testament to the quality and excellence of the care and compassion Dr. Iwach provides to all of his patients.”
Dr. Iwach remarked: “I was privileged to be Henry’s eye surgeon for many years. Attentive and customized ongoing management allowed us to preserve his vision and in turn, Henry was able to continue his many passions including photography.” Dr. Iwach added “Henry realized the importance of funding promising investigations to better understand glaucoma as well as the importance of educational and collaborative efforts. I am both humbled and honored by his most generous philanthropy.”
