The University of Toledo College of Medicine’s Medical Mission Hall of Fame will induct its fourth class of honorees Friday, March 23.

Dr. Ira Abrahamson, Dr. Harold and Bonnie Jo Adolph, Dr. Lawrence Conway, Dr. James Diller and Dr. Edna Adan Ismail will be honored during a program in the Driscoll Alumni Center Auditorium on UT’s Main Campus from 4 to 6 p.m.

Established in 2004 to honor those individuals and/or organizations that have made significant and substantial contributions to advancing the medical well-being of people throughout the world, the Medical Mission Hall of Fame became an affiliate of UT’s College of Medicine in 2006. A permanent home for the Medical Mission Hall of Fame has been established in the atrium of the Center for Creative Education on UT’s Health Science Campus.

Abrahamson of Cincinnati is founder of the Abrahamson Pediatric Eye Institute at Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital Medical Center. His vision is to wipe out preventable blindness in children, and he has championed that cause on medical missions around the world.

The Adolphs of Soddo, Ethiopia, are career medical missionaries and helped to establish the Soddo Christian Hospital, a surgical training center with a local population of 3 million.

Conway of Toledo founded the Medical Mission Hall of Fame to honor those medical professionals who advance the health and medical well-being of people throughout the world and who inspire others to do the same. He is UT professor emeritus of finance.

Diller of Ann Arbor served three years in the Belgian Congo and 25 years as a short-term surgical team leader in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Along with Conway, Diller created the Diller Foundation, whose mission is to facilitate the deployment of health-care personnel, medicines and hospital and medical equipment to those in need around the world.

Ismail of Hargeysa, Somaliland, established the Edna Adan Maternity Hospital in Somaliland, a teaching and research facility that serves as an example of the importance of investing in health services in order to improve the welfare of the nation.

This class joins 13 prior recipients in receiving the honor.
