Robert G Josephberg ’72 was recently inducted as a charter member into the Retina Hall of Fame (RHOF), for his special recognition and his significant achievements in the practice of medicine and contributions to the retinal subspecialty. 200 other members from all over the world, which also happened to span the past 40 years in the retinal field, were also given this unique and great honor from the the American Society of Retinal Specialists (ASRS), the largest Retinal association in the world. Dr Josephberg graduated with an MD from Albany Medical College in 1976 and did his retinal fellowship at the Baylor College of Medicine. While there, he was mentored by Dr. Alice McPherson ’48, MD ’51 , one of the premier Retinal Specialists in the world , who also was one of two founders in 2002 of the institute named in her honor, The McPherson Eye Research Institute. This is on our own UW—Madison campus. Dr. Alice McPherson is also the founding president of the University of Wisconsin Ophthalmology Alumni Association. Dr Josephberg still continues to be the Chief of The Retinal Division at NY Medical College (Valhalla, NY ) for the past 25 years .
