David Story

David Westbrook understands the need for innovation in pediatric ophthalmology. As a teenager, he became blind from a rare condition — juvenile glaucoma. The best surgeries at the time couldn’t save his vision. Today David is the Vice President of Strategy and Innovation at Children’s Mercy and is helping push forward innovations that make it possible for kids with his condition to see. In gratitude to those who support the hospital’s ophthalmology program, David donated $1 million to Children’s Mercy. The Ophthalmology Clinic bears his name.
