Engaging Discussions Offered by Practitioners for Practitioners on
Variety of Timely Eye Care Topics
SAN RAMON, Calif., October 30, 2020—Beginning this month, CooperVision will kick off its new ECP ViewpointsSM Peer-to-Peer Virtual Learning Series, a collection of educational sessions presented by eye care professionals for eye care professionals. During each webinar, practitioners will host discussions about a variety of relevant eye care topics, sharing insights, best practices for success in the current environment, and peer-reviewed and other pertinent research. The series will continue throughout 2021.
“Through our partnership with eye care professionals, we have come to recognize the value of peer-based, insight-driven conversation for today’s practitioners,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Vice President of Professional and Government Affairs, Americas, CooperVision. “We’re excited to offer these sessions virtually, as it provides an opportunity for more eye care professionals from across the U.S. and Canada to not only access this education, but to add their own voices and experiences to the discussion.”
The ECP ViewpointsSM Peer-to-Peer Virtual Learning Series topics will be updated approximately every 12 weeks, and sessions covering each topic will be offered on multiple dates and times in effort to accommodate practitioners’ schedules. The sessions are free and open to doctors and their staff.
For November, the topics and schedule are as follows. Attendees must register at the links provided.
