University Education Challenge 2015

University Education Challenge 2015

Congratulations to UIW Rosenberg School of Optometry

ABB OPTICAL GROUP and Paragon Vision Sciences have launched the companies’ first University Education Challenge, a program designed to support the optometrists of tomorrow! The program and participant requirements were announced in June 2015 at the annual Association of Optometric Contact Lens Educators (AOCLE) conference.

Each participating school selected a team from its third-year class to create a 45-to-60-minute live, online presentation on any topic relating to contact lenses. The presentations, held from September through April, were judged on overall webinar attendance and scores of a post-webinar survey that were emailed to all optometrists and optometry students who viewed the presentation.

All of the schools provided exceptional presentations that proved a bright future for the next generation of optometrists, and you can view their presentations below.
