WIHS: Zoom with Ophthalmologist-in-Chief Dr. Julie Haller

Hi everyone,

We are excited to announce our final speaker for the semester, Dr. Julie Haller! She’ll address her experience and background as a doctor as well as the impact of COVID-19 on her practice.

Dr. Haller has an impressive biography:

She is Ophthalmologist-in-Chief of Wills Eye Hospital (PA), where she holds the William Tasman, M.D. Endowed Chair. She serves as Professor and Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, and Co-Director of the Wills Vision Research Center at Jefferson.

She received her A.B. from Princeton and attended Harvard Medical School, followed by an internship at Johns Hopkins and a fellowship in ocular pathology at Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. She completed residency at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital, followed by a retina fellowship at Hopkins. She was appointed the first female Chief Resident at Wilmer in 1986.

She is also President of the Women in Medicine Legacy Foundation and the mother of five children! This fall, she was elected to the National Academy of Medicine, considered one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine, which recognizes individuals who have “demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service.” Dr. Haller was elected for “innovating translational advances against blindness on many fronts, including sustained drug delivery devices, ocular pharmacotherapy, retinal ‘chip’ implants, gene therapy, telemedicine, and combatting health care disparities,” according to the Academy.

To read more about her, check out her wikipedia page or the page from Wills Eye Hospital.

Register for Middlebury’s first hackathon–no experience needed!

MiddHacks

April 25-26, 2020

Axinn Center at Starr Library

A hackathon is a design sprint-like event in which participants form teams and work together around a specific idea or problem; they start from scratch to come up with new solutions. The goal of a hackathon is to create functioning software or hardware by the end of the event. We are not using a computer to gain unauthorized access to data in a system (in the popularized sense of the word); instead, we are building a prototype for an idea and problem statement in an innovative way in a given time.

Participants will work in teams of 3-5 to design and innovate amazing technical projects in just 24 hours. The hackathon will have the help of excellent mentors from our distinguished sponsors and Middlebury College professors. There will be exciting workshops and tech talks to attend. You may register just to attend our workshops and other fun tech-related sessions. We’ll have free food, prizes, games, and more. Don’t have a team, or even an idea? Don’t worry! We’ll give you the tools to build something incredible.

If this would be your first hackathon, that’s perfect! It’s ours, too. MiddHacks hopes to attract participants at varying levels of technical expertise and with a wide range of interests. We welcome all–from the first-year student who has never taken a coding class before college but is interested in technology to the senior majoring in Computer Science who has all the technical building blocks.
