Julie Grove, OD, FAAO, attended Academy 2015 New Orleans on October 7-10, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Academy 2015 New Orleans was the 94th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Optometry. Highlights of the meeting included nearly 250 hours of continuing education (CE) courses, scientific presentations and an exhibit hall with more than 170 companies exhibiting. More than 7,400 optometrists, vision care professionals, vision scientists and optometry students from around the world attended this prestigious meeting.
At this year’s meeting, Dr. Grove was awarded Fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry. Professionals who become Fellows of the Academy must complete a rigorous candidacy process. Candidates submit extensive written work and must also pass an oral examination. A panel of leading optometrists and vision scientists must approve both the written work and oral examination. Less than ten percent of practicing optometrists are Fellows of the Academy. Fellows of the American Academy of Optometry constantly strive for the highest professional standards. The American Academy of Optometry annual meetings are recognized as presenting the latest in research and information on patient and vision care.
Congratulations to Dr. Grove!
