Vanderbilt Eye Institute (VEI) and local dignitaries will come together to cut a ribbon in celebration of the opening of its new location to better serve Murfreesboro.

Paul Sternberg, Jr., M.D., G.W. Hale Professor of Ophthalmology and Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, David O. Ranz, M.D., longtime local ophthalmologist and VEI physician, Rutherford Chamber of Commerce leadership, and more will be in attendance.
