About Dr. Newman

Through the lecture series, our goals are to:

  • Provide educational opportunities for our faculty, fellows and residents.
  • Establish our department as the “go to” place for high quality educational ophthalmic and optometric education in the community.
  • Develop broad regional support for the “Unity in Community” program and establish Omaha as a regionally recognized ophthalmic educational center of excellence by unifying the vision community through education and collaboration.
  • Bring highly accomplished and nationally recognized speakers to UNMC to both provide education across a wide array of subspecialties, as well as to increase our department's national presence.
