Congratulations to Dr. Ben Roberts!
The American Academy of Ophthalmology has honored Tenwek physician Dr. Benjamin Roberts with its 2016 Outstanding Humanitarian Award. Dr. Roberts has been practicing at Tenwek since 2006. In announcing the award, the Academy noted, “His self-sacrifice is driven by an infectious passion for service to God and his fellow man that serves as an inspiration to his colleagues, medical students and the surgical teams he leads. He has truly followed his heart, and the clinical practice he has developed in Kenya has flourished not only from excellence in eye care, but from genuine humanity and kindness.” Read more here.
