Brett Davies, a fellow in Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, has been promoted from captain to major in the United States Air Force. He is receiving advanced training at the Anschutz Medical Campus in the Ophthalmology Department. Davies soon will be the only fellowship-trained oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the U.S. Air Force. Robert Enzenauer, professor of Ophthalmology and Pediatrics, and brigadier general in the Colorado Army National Guard and Assistant Adjutant General for Space and Missile Defense, conducted Davies’ promotion ceremony May 1 at the Rocky Mountain Lyons Eye Institute on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Kimberley Lovelace, a recent Navy veteran, and current fellow in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus, assisted Enzenauer as adjutant and narrator for the ceremony.
Davies’ family, preceptor, ophthalmology faculty and students, assisted in pinning on his new rank. The purpose and goal of ASOPRS or American Society of Ophthalmlic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is to continue as a leader and innovator of oculoplastics through fellowship training in ophthalmology. As a sponsor of oculoplastic training programs, the society will sponsor only those programs capable of providing broad clinical experience and laboratory research.
