This ride is being conducted in honor of Frank M. Polack, M.D., a pioneer in the field of ophthalmology. Dr. Polack passed away in the summer of 2007. His wife and family received generous support from Hospice of Marion County. One of his sons, Peter J. Polack, M.D., is an ophthalmologist with Ocala Eye. Dr. Polack and his colleagues encourage your full participation in this event and continued support of all the wonderful things Hospice does for the community.
