Primary Care: A Female Perspective

Thursday, September 18 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM |

In this course, taught by two female OD's, we will analyze the challenges in our current and future healthcare environment that are specific to women.  We will review disease cases specific to female patients and analyze how to address the unique challenges that arise.  Efficiencies in the examination process will be valuated including how to implement these efficiencies to improve patient care in the cases discussed for better outcomes of the disease.

Speakers: Dori Carlson, OD | Heartland Eye Center, April Jasper, OD | Advanced Eyecare Specialists
