On June 18, 2019, UCLA faculty members, family and friends gathered at the UCLA Stein Eye Institute to celebrate Bert O. Levy and his gift to establish the Bert O. Levy Endowed Chair in Orbital and Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Robert Alan Goldberg (MD ’83, RES ’87, FEL ’88, ’89), chief of the Division of Orbital and Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery at Stein Eye, was appointed as the inaugural chair holder. Funds from the chair will help Dr. Goldberg, a ull-time member of the UCLA faculty since 1989 and division chief since 1990, continue advancing research, patient care and education. Within this subspecialty, Dr. Goldberg is the primary faculty mentor for medical students, residents, physicians and clinical and international fellows. Dr. Goldberg has authored more than 250 peer-reviewed papers and 64 books and book chapters, and he is on the editorial board for prestigious journals, including the Aesthetic Surgery Journal and JAMA Ophthalmology (formerly Archives of Ophthalmology).
Dr. Bartly J. Mondino, director of Stein Eye, chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology, affiliation chairman of the Doheny Eye Institute and Bradley R. Straatsma, M.D. Endowed Chair in Ophthalmology, presented Dr. Goldberg and Levy with commemorative chair trophies. Levy was joined by several family members and friends. Also in attendance were Dr. Goldberg’s wife Dr. Jan Takasugi and members of the UCLA Orbital and Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery Division.
