Bonus Episode: VBD2019 Post Meeting Wrap Up

Welcome back to the ortho-k podcast! For this episode I thought it would be fun to give our listeners a peek into the post-con wrap up conversation with three of our AAOMC board members and what I consider to be the core of the education committee responsible for Vision By Design. Cary Herzberg, Caroline Cauchi, Paul Levine joined me for a post-con retrospective. VBD2019 was so much fun and there was so many great moments I thought it would be nice for us to share some of the highlights as well as some things we would like to improve upon for next year.

 Remember, if you were at VBD2019, makes sure to check your email for our follow up survey that went out recently, as well as the meeting survey from the university of Houston college of optometry who served as our COPE administrator for Vision By Design 2019.
