Looking for the Next Great Humanitarian

Two years ago, a generous gift from David and Victoria Chang created The Chang Humanitarian Award, a new way to bring attention to the great sight-givers in our midst.  The goal of the award was to honor and recognize outstanding humanitarian work with a focus on cataract blindness and disability. In its two previous honorees, Drs. Alan Crandall and Richard Litwin, the Chang Humanitarian Award has established a blueprint for the caliber of philanthropist it will recognize. On July 15th, the ASCRS Foundation opened nominations for the 2020 award.
