Eve Higginbotham, M.D., is professor of ophthalmology and vice dean for Inclusion and Diversity at the University of Pennsylvania. In her lecture, "Peering Beyond the Blindspot Seeking Authentic Risk Factors: A Case Study," she will discuss the arguments about "race" in the context of why this topic is important for its impact on care and care delivery. She will review a central corneal thickness case study and what the future may be for the discussion of risk factors. This will be the annual Pittman Lecture, which is given by a researcher dedicated to advancing and improving the careers of women scientists — exemplifying the intelligence, scientific excellence, and drive that made Margaret Pittman a leader as the first female laboratory chief at the NIH.
