This video follows my journey through Optometry’s Meeting 2014! To read my blog on OM13 please click here.
Summary of student events in Optometry’s Meeting:
The largest event at the 117th Annual AOA Congress & 44th Annual AOSA Conference: Optometry’s Meeting is the Varilux® Optometry Student Bowl™ XXIII and Reception. This event reminds me of a large-scale academic decathlon, where optometric questions are asked and the contestants must buzz in and answer correctly for points.
UIWRSO’s contestant to the student bowl was Joey Allen, Class of 2015! Joey fought through the first round but eventually got knocked out in a 3 way tie! This year David Nguyen from SCCO was the Varilux® Optometry Student Bowl™ contestant who took home the championship trophy! The students from MCPHS University were raising the roof and earned the Spirit Award, meaning they get to create the official rules video for the student bowl. The students from NSUOCO claimed the Virtual Spirit Award, hence had front row seats to the event. Congratulations to PCO for winning the t-shirt contest!
For more info on the Optometry Student bowl please watch my other video.
I would like to thank UIWRSO alumnus and blogger Linh Phan for accommodating UIWRSO students. I would also like that thank Allergan for generously providing me a travel grant to OM14! Finally, thank you UIWRSO students who attended and made this year’s RSO representation in Optometry’s meeting so fun and strong!
