Rhodes named to prestigious Leadership Development class
Lindsay A. Rhodes, M.D., assistant professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham was named to the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Leadership Development Program Class of 2015. This prestigious program represents a commitment by the AAO to develop future leaders.
The group comprises 20 ophthalmologists from across the United States and one international appointee. Rhodes, who joined the faculty in 2013 upon completion of her glaucoma fellowship and residency at UAB, has taken an active role in the ophthalmic community.
“Dr. Rhodes’ selection for this program comes as no surprise to those of us who have known her since her residency,” said Russell W. Read, M.D., Ph.D., professor and ophthalmology residency program director. “She functioned from the beginning as a leader and has been active in advocacy efforts from the earliest stage of her career in ophthalmology. The Academy’s LDP made an excellent choice, and we look forward to her progression into ever greater levels of leadership.”
Rhodes also serves on the board of directors for the Alabama Academy of Ophthalmology as well as on the Young Ophthalmologist Advocacy Subcommittee of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to develop leadership skills that will help me make positive changes to the field of ophthalmology and improve the care we provide our patients,” said Rhodes.
Rhodes is a comprehensive ophthalmologist and glaucoma specialist. She is also involved in clinical research focused on developing new strategies to provide quality, cost-effective glaucoma care to a rapidly growing aging population.
