At their May 19 meeting, the ICO Board of Trustees elected a new Public Trustree. Osvaldo I. Lopez, MD, is the Chief of Ophthalmology at the Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
He recently played a key role bringing corneal cross-linking to the Illinois Eye Institute, and is a strong advocate for optometry. “I believe that innovation in medicine is positive only if it translates into better care for our patients,” he says. Dr. Lopez is a well-known leader in the Hispanic community, involved in multiple civic and philanthropic efforts. He will serve a 3-year term.
