Dr. Elena Barraquer distinguished with the first “Carmen Piera Award,” which recognizes pioneering and philanthropy in Ophthalmology and which this year goes to Dr. Elena Barraquer.
Carmen Piera was one of the first female ophthalmologists in the Valencian Community. She developed her activity in the city and surroundings of Sueca (Valencia) in a self-sacrificing and self-sacrificing way, also creating at her own expense antitracomatose dispensaries.
Dr. Piera’s sons, José Eduardo and Juan Francisco Navarro Piera, presented the award to Dr. Barraquer during a very emotional ceremony.
