The MSO team, including President Dr. Matthew Forgues, Immediate Past President Dr. Brian Wadman, Executive Director Jay Gardiner, and MSO staff Richie Lawless and Kalyn Burke, attended MCPHS University's inaugural State Night event for the new class of 2020.
The event was hosted by MCPHS and the American Optometric Student Association (AOSA). Students learned about the importance of getting involved with their student association, as well as the AOA and state associations following graduation. A major emphasis was placed on all of the optometric scope milestones the AOA and state associations have achieved over the years, and how far optometry has come thanks to the work of these groups.
MSO President Dr. Matthew Forgues, and Immediate Past President Dr. Brian Wadman also talked with students about life after optometry school, and the issues practicing doctors of optometry face day-to-day. A trivia competition with prizes followed to cap off the night.
Many thanks to MCPHS, the AOSA, and the MCPHS's MSO Club for making this event possible. We were thrilled to be a part of it and to welcome the class of 2020 to Massachusetts!
