Vision Expo East will feature a new level of programming for optometry students at the annual meeting to be held Mar. 14-17 in New York City. The purpose is to help students successfully make the leap from the classroom to professional practice.

 

Norwalk, CT-International Vision Expo East (VEE) will feature a new level of programming and rewards for optometry students at the annual meeting to be held Mar. 14-17 at the Javits Center in New York City.

To help students navigate the leap from the classroom to professional practice, VEE will offer a two-part, interactive course, sponsored by VSP Global, to teach critical post-graduation decision-making for the health of their practice and patients.

“Our focus expanded to helping students apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations on the show floor-from sourcing and test-driving products to walking through the purchasing process with vendors,” said Tom Loughran, group vice president for Reed Exhibitions, co-sponsor of VEE along with The Vision Council.

Other student-focused opportunities will include a new mentor program and many peer-to-peer networking events. Additionally, International Vision Expo & Conference has awarded $500 travel grants to two students from each of the 23 schools within the American Optometric Student Association.
