Established in 2007, the Daniel M. Jacobson Memorial Lecture honors a man who accomplished a rare trifecta of scholarship: 1) the selection of topics of clinical importance; 2) the use of impeccable research methods; and 3) the production of superbly written publications. The Jacobson Lecture honors the memory and legacy of our colleague Daniel M. Jacobson, M.D. (1956-2003). Dan was an outstanding teacher and brilliant clinician with an inquiring mind. During his lifetime, he published over 70 papers, many as the sole author. His astute clinical observations greatly influenced the practice of neuro-ophthalmology. He was a true colleague and friend, respected for his integrity and humility. The Jacobson lecture is a tribute to these qualities.
