New Format

Nebraska Optometry's Meeting kicked off Thursday morning for ODs and afternoon for Paras, and packed a full slate of education, networking, social events, and timely information into two-and-ahalf days. The conference finished by noon on Saturday, giving attendees the rest of their weekend for family, football, and relaxing.

Top Notch Education for ODs & Paras

Doctors could earn up to 16 hours of CE credits toward re-licensure. Featured lecturers were Dr. Mark Maraman and Dr. Leonard Messner. Also included were NOA's popular Grand Rounds from Nebraska and concurrent, small-group interactive Learning Lounges.

Paraoptometric staff could choose from 30 courses covering four educational tracks that offered a variety of paraoptometric specialties including clinical, optical, contact lenses, and practice management. Featured para speaker was Patrick Coleman.
