WASHINGTON – “Optometry has made amazing progress due to the incredible advocacy work our members do in each of our states and here in D.C.,” Andrea P. Thau, OD, outgoing American Optometric Association president, told the AOA House of Delegates here at Optometry’s Meeting.
“How can you further our efforts?” she asked. “You are making a difference by being here. Advocate with your representatives. Donate to the AOA-Political Action Committee. And encourage your members to join in. There is no better time than now for doctors and students to make sure that our frontline and expanding role are understood and that our priorities, focused on protecting the doctor-patient relationship, are front and center.”
