As a student in the School of Medicine at UMMC, Dr. Kimberly Crowder’s professors included Dr. C.J. Chen, Department of Ophthalmology chair and an internationally acclaimed retinal diseases specialist. Chen taught her not just how to be an ophthalmologist, but the need to hold patient care, research and education sacred. Crowder is the first Drs. C.J. and Lin Chen Endowed Chair for Excellence in Ophthalmology, an honor Chen says will help Crowder bring the department to new heights.
