Emily Graves, MD - co-director of the University of Tennessee Hamilton Eye Institute Lion's Club - has done considerable international volunteer work during her ophthalmic career. But she's also come to understand the significant need right in her own community. Dr. Graves and her co-director, Brian Fowler, MD, decided to address that need in Memphis. “Instead of doing individual surgeries throughout the year, we wanted to attempt something larger.”
