UNC Ophthalmology congratulates Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and Residency Program Director Alice Zhang, MD, for her selection as the 2023 Real World Ophthalmology (RWO) Exceptional Leadership Award recipient. Created by an early-career ophthalmologist, Real World Ophthalmology (RWO) serves a wide network of ophthalmologists who are in early-stage medical practice. Both virtually and at specialty-dedicated events, the RWO forum brings peer young ophthalmologists together worldwide to learn from one another’s experiences and share expertise. RWO hosts bi-annual virtual meetings, podcasts and events at large meetings, such as AAO 2023.

Dr. Zhang and other awardees will be honored at the Fall 2023 Real World Ophthalmology Awards ceremony at AAO 2023, in early November.
