Happy New Year to all!
Each year I am proud to announce this opportunity for students and residents interested in rehabilitative vision care. NORA has been hugely influential to the way I practice and I love that we have taken steps to make the meeting more accessible for students. I attended my first NORA Meeting in Boston in 2004 and was one of 2 students there. I was a 3rd year Optometry student who was ready and eager to learn. NORA introduced me to the idea that we, as Optometrists, are only a small piece to the puzzle that most patients need. Being aware of and respectful of the multitude of needs a person may need in a rehabilitative situation has allowed me to help people much more completely. I was instrumental in forming the grant program for students and have been the chair of the committee for the past 9 years. It has been a wonderfully satisfying 9 years to have helped so many students become a part of NORA! I am looking forward to another wonderful year.
