ICO Prepares for Academy 2016

Students, faculty, alumni, and friends are packing their bags for Academy 2016– the American Academy of Optometry (AAO)’s annual meeting. This year’s event is November 9-12 in Anaheim, California. The meeting provides an excellent opportunity for people in the profession to network and learn about the latest developments in optometry, including CE programs, lectures, and scientific research.

As the oldest and most popular optometry school in the nation, ICO will be well represented. Our faculty and residents have produced 41 posters full of new research. Meanwhile, our students will be recognized for their achievements in scholarship programs. Several ASCO meetings will also be taking place, with the ASCO Development meeting being planned by ICO’s own Connie Scavuzzo.

While at Academy, don’t miss out on the ICO Alumni and Friends Reception, 7:30 p.m. at the Anaheim Marriott. We’ll be in the Orange County Ballroom 1 & 2. A 50/50 raffle will be held to help raise funds for the Alumni Association Scholarship, and alumni will have the opportunity to become Alumni Ambassadors for ICO. All are welcome!

We wish safe travels to the ICO family and all of our colleagues. Enjoy California!
