SAN RAMON, Calif., May 21, 2020—In support of U.S. eye care professionals working to reopen their practices and rebuild their businesses, CooperVision will host a webinar series featuring its Best Practices program honorees, “Best Practices to Get You Back to Practice.” The series kicks off on Thursday, May 28.


Best Practices has always been about sharing the stories and expertise of the practices that have taken the profession’s challenges head on, finding ways to thrive in spite of them. COVID-19 is an obstacle that all eye care professionals are currently facing—and the best way to get through it is together,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Senior Director of Professional and Academic Affairs, North America, CooperVision. “With this webinar series, we’re providing ECPs the ability to collaborate with some of the brightest minds in the industry on a peer-to-peer level, knowing that they are in the trenches right beside them.”


Each of the six webinars will feature two eye care professionals from CooperVision’s Best Practices initiative, which recognizes optometric practices that advance the profession through innovation, leadership, and the provision of exceptional patient experience. During the webinars, the honorees—who span the program’s five years—will provide insight on various topics relevant to practice management and patient care during the pandemic.


The “Best Practices to Get You Back to Practice” webinars are free and open to any eye care professional. The full schedule is as follows:
