The 2014 Annual Academy Meeting was November 12-15th in Denver, Colorado. The UMSL AAO Student Chapter had a record high in student attendance of sixteen! Five students in the class of 2015, nine students in the class of 2016, and two students from the class of 2017. The UMSL chapter was also able to provide nine of these students with travel grants. The amount of CE was overwhelming and almost all of our students took the opportunity to become student fellows! See below for pictures of the trip.
The 2013 Annual Academy Meeting was October 23rd-26th in Seattle. The UMSL AAO Student Chapter was able to help fund four students to attend this meeting. Our students reported having a great time and learned so much! See below for pictures of the trip.
The 2012 Academy Annual Meeting took place in Phoenix on October 24th-26th. The UMSL AAO Student Chapter helped fund the attendance of 11 students to this event! Seven members of the Class of 2014 and four members of the class of 2013 attended the meeting. We were very please with the number of students that represented UMSL. The CE lectures and overall experience was enjoyed by all. Many students were able to make vital contacts within the field of optometry that will greatly benefit them as they continue their professional careers. Many students also gained valuable information at the Residency Luncheon. Once again, we hope for even greater attendance at the 2013 meeting! See below for pictures of the trip.
The 2011 Academy Annual Meeting took place in Boston on October 12th-15th. Three members of the Class of 2013 and two members of the Class of 2014 represented the student chapter at the meeting.
