MASS. EYE AND EAR OPENS OFFICE OF GLOBAL SURGERY


More than 100 guests gathered to celebrate an announcement that will soon impact thousands around the world as Mass. Eye and Ear hosted a reception to announce the opening of its Office of Global Surgery and Public Health on June 5. The Office of Global Surgery and Public Health was made possible through the generosity of Carmella Kletjian, who established the Steven C. and Carmella R. Kletjian Endowed Chair in Global Surgery. Dr. Mack Cheney is the first incumbent of the Kletjian chair. Ms. Kletjian has a special connection to Mass. Eye and Ear; she is a nurse and worked as a CRNA at the hospital in the past. The afternoon included comments from Dr. Cheney and Dr. Roberto Pineda, a moving poem from Dr. Tessa Hadlock and remarks from Chief of Ophthalmology Dr. Joan Miller. “This is the first-ever Mass. Eye and Ear-based Chair and the first Chair in Global Surgery at an academic medical institution,” said Dr. Miller. “With this gift as a cornerstone, we are proud to be launching the Office of Global Surgery and Public Health. Funding from endowed chairs is what enables our gifted physicians to pursue some of the most innovative clinical initiatives and transformational research,” she said.
