AOA+ Invigorates Optometry’s Next Generation

Uploaded Image: /uploads/images/OM_2017.jpg

This week the NYSOA is in Washington, D.C. attending Optometry's Meeting, AOA on Capitol Hill, and the inaugural AOA+, which united more than 2,300 students and new doctors in supporting organized optometry. The NYSOA and local optometric societies from around the state joined in sponsoring over a dozen young ODs to attend the week-long event and gain valuable advocacy and leadership experience, as well as network with peers and students. We are excited and encouraged by the enthusiasm, talent, and optimism among this next generation of leaders.
