Allen C. Ho, MD,
is editor of The Panretinal View. He is a member of the Retina Service, Wills Eye Hospital, and is associate professor of
ophthalmology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia.

I recently ran a 5K road race, and the race marshal was Louis W. Sullivan, MD, former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services from 1989 to 1993. Proceeds from the race were to benefit a small community island hospital, and the annual race has come to be known as the Sullivan Health and Fitness 5K.
