Title: Memories of Mark Marshall
featuring Dr. Rod Morgan

Dr. Marshall made exemplary contributions that helped shape the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences as well as residency education at the University of Alberta. We are very fortunate to have as our inaugural lecturer, Dr. Rod Morgan, who knew Dr. Marshall personally and who will share historical and personal experiences that will undoubtedly enlighten us so that we can reflect on the contributions and values that Dr. Marshall exemplified.  As Dean Fedorak is fond of saying 'we stand on the shoulders of giants' and Dr. Marshall is certainly one of these!
