“All Problems Yield to Effort”

These were the words Dr. Sell believed deeply. His life, and the work of this foundation, are proof of this truth. Today, the Arizona Retina Research Foundation moves forward under a new name in honor of our beloved friend and mentor. While we have seen many advancements in recent years, Clive left this life believing much more could and should be done. The vision that the Sell Foundation puts forward for the broader eye care community is born of integrity, excellence, and hope.
