Jerre M. Freeman, MD, Shares Hamilton Eye Institute History


The Memphis Medical History Society hosted an event at the Hamilton Eye Institute's Freeman Auditorium that was both historical and, itself, historic. "Hamilton Eye Institute: History & Development" was presented by Jerre M. Freeman, MD, founder of Memphis Eye & Cataract Associates and chairman of the World Cataract Foundation.

Dr. Freeman-for whom the Freeman Auditorium is named-recounted the development of ophthalmology in the Mid-South, featuring the careers of some of the key visionaries and benefactors whose dedication led to the founding of a world-class eye institute in Memphis. The event was shared worldwide via live webcast and will remain a permanent and treasured historical document in our online video archive.
