The Wolken Ethics Lecture Series

The Wolken Ethics Lecture Series was initiated in 2014 with a generous gift from Stephen and Sue Wolken and their son and daughter-in-law, Mark Wolken and Jennifer Huber. Steve and Mark both completed their residencies in Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa. The Wolkens have been generous contributors to the UI over many years, including the Dr. Stephen H. and Sue Montgomery Wolken Medical Scholarship.

The Wolken Ethics Lecture Series provides a forum to share and discuss topics related to medical ethics and their application to the profession of medicine in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. The series will be a part of the department’s major meetings or clinic conferences. This fund may also provide support to enhance educational programs and training.
