Dr. Evan Waxman awarded a Carnegie Science Award in the Catalyst for Professional and Community Education Category
The Carnegie Science Center established the Carnegie Science Awards program to recognize and promote outstanding science and technology achievements in western Pennsylvania. Celebrating its 16th year, the Carnegie Science Awards have honored the accomplishments of more than 300 individuals and organizations that have improved lives through their commitment and contributions in science and technology.
Among Dr. Waxman’s most notable achievements is the Guerilla Eye Service, a community service and teaching project that provides essential eye exams to underserved patients. Since 2005, GES has trained dozens of students in eye exam structure and has provided care for thousands of patients in need. I hope that you will consider sharing this news with the Mt. Sinai community. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further information regarding Dr. Waxman and his accomplishment.
