The department must raise $400,000 (current gifts and/or pledges) by June 30, 2017 to establish the chair that will support pediatric faculty in their research, teaching and clinical care efforts and honor the legacy of Byron Demorest, one of the department’s founders. The UC Davis Eye Center is one of the only ophthalmology departments in the region that accepts pediatric ophthalmology patients covered under Medi-Cal. An endowed faculty position will allow the department to continue to fulfill its commitment to treat our pediatric ophthalmology patients regardless of ability to pay for the services needed and recognize extraordinary excellence in patient care, teaching and research.
