The Glaucoma Research Foundation (GRF) named Dennis Singleton the 2009 recipient of its Visionary Award. As a long-time member of the GRF’s board, Mr. Singleton was honored for his dedication to the cause of glaucoma research and education.
According to a news release, Mr. Singleton has served on the GRF’s board of directors since 1998 and served as board chairman from July 2003 to June 2006. Under his leadership, the GRF reportedly realized its greatest growth in contributed income, and its Catalyst for a Cure Campaign raised $8.6 million to support glaucoma research.
“[Mr. Singleton’s] leadership provided a wonderful opportunity to learn from him and work together toward a greater vision for the GRF,” said Thomas M. Brunner, president and chief executive officer of the GRF, in a news release.
