Professor Luigina Sorbara – Tributes

IACLE members pay their tributes to Professor Gina Sorbara

If you wish to share your condolences with other IACLE members, please add your comment.

‘Gina’s death is premature. She wasn’t ready to retire and leave us, and we are not ready to lose her. She still had a lot to give to the optometry field, and we still had to learn a lot from her. She was a living resource of scientific knowledge, wisdom, and love. She was an inspiration, and now she has become even more so. One way to honor her is to try to live as she lived, fully and with passion. Death makes very few people immortal; Gina is one of them.’
