Gain Knowledge, Achieve Visibility, Affect Change.
This is the motto of the Women in Ophthalmology organization, which in summer of 2018, bestowed upon Dr. Matossian the “Champion for Change” award for her efforts to promote diversity and equality in ophthalmology.
The Women in Ophthalmology organization provides women eye care specialists the resources and support to be their best professional and personal self, surrounded by a community of women who “have been where you are, are where you are now, or will be where you are someday.” The organization is committed to helping women eye doctors raise their levels of professionalism and attain leadership skills and surgical knowledge.
The “Champion for Change” award is presented annually to a select few eye doctors who strive to promote equality and diversity in the field of eye care. Dr. Matossian and the entire team of eye doctors at Matossian Eye Associates are dedicated to making equality and diversity foundational aspects of the MEA experience.
