Dr. Hitchman: “... my father received treatment for soft tissue sarcoma at The James, and Ohio State came to mean so much more. In fact, one day during second year, my friend Kirsti Roehm got our entire class and Dr. Davis to wear yellow as a sign of support on a day my father was having surgery. The words ‘how firm thy friendship’ are perfectly fitting for the camaraderie I experienced during my years at Ohio State.”

Dr. Peiffer: “… eye care provides opportunity. From a pediatric standpoint, addressing eye health and eye care gives children the opportunity develop critical visual skills, learn to read, and enjoy the beauty of the world around them.”

“I could tell from the very beginning that I was entering a program that was going to be rigorous but rewarding. The further along I get in this education, and especially now being on externs, the more I realize how well prepared I am going to be when I graduate to deliver care at the highest level.”
