The Costenbader Lecture was established to honor Frank D. Costenbader, the founder of Pediatric Ophthalmology in North America, who dedicated his professional life to the recognition of this subspecialty and to the training of future pediatric ophthalmologists according to his ideals. Each year the AAPOS Costenbader Lecture Committee selects a distinguished Pediatric Ophthalmologist to deliver a major lecture on his or her research and experience in the field of Pediatric Ophthalmology.
The Leonard Apt Lecture was established and first presented in 2000 by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Section on Ophthalmology (SOOp) to honor Leonard Apt, MD, for his dedication and contributions in the fields of pediatrics and pediatric ophthalmology. Dr. Apt was the first physician to be board-certified in both pediatrics and ophthalmology. The Leonard Apt Lecture pays tribute to Dr. Apt not only for his educational and scientific contributions, but also for his pioneer role in helping to create pediatric ophthalmology as a new medical subspecialty.
The Knapp Lecture was established to honor Philip Knapp, MD, one of the early academic strabismologists in North America who dedicated his talents to research in strabismus and to training future academic leaders in his field. The AAPOS International Affairs Committee (IAC) selects a distinguished International Pediatric Ophthalmologist/Strabismologist to deliver a lecture at the Annual Meeting in even-numbered years. The lecturer will present his or her research and experience in pediatric ophthalmology - especially ocular motility disorders.
