Race in Optometry - Accountability - One Year Later
Last year, the SUNY College of Optometry’s Office of Continuing Professional Education hosted a three-part Webinar Series on Race in Optometry.  These webinars took a hard look at the experiences of Black optometrists as students, residents, faculty, and practitioners. It was our intent to foster a dialogue that would lead to needed changes in optometric education and in the eye care industry. This year’s webinar, scheduled in conjunction with the Juneteenth celebration, brings back many of last year’s panelists to discuss whether substantive improvements have been made and where additional efforts are needed.
