CooperVision Introduces 2024 Best Practices Honorees and Student Award Recipients

Recognizing both current and future leaders in optometry, CooperVision announced today its 2024 Best Practices honorees and student award recipients. The initiative—now in its ninth year—honors innovative U.S. eye care practices who are committed to advancing the profession and providing exceptional patient care, while the student component enables standout third-year optometry students to learn directly from the best of the best.

The 10 new honorees join a prestigious group of 80 other extraordinary optometry practices that have been featured and supported through the initiative since 2016.

“Every year, we are captivated by the stories of so many outstanding optometry practices who go above and beyond for both their patients and the profession. It is truly rewarding to partner with our Best Practices honorees to share those stories more broadly across the industry,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Vice President of Professional and Government Affairs, Americas, CooperVision. “We know that the ideas and experiences of our newest honorees will continue to inspire other eye care professionals—and each other—to find even greater success in their practices. We welcome them all to the Best Practices family and look forward to what’s to come this year.”

The 2024 Best Practices honorees are:

CooperVision’s Best Practices program also includes a component for third-year optometry students. Each year, three students are awarded the opportunity to participate in the annual Best Practices educational summit to learn from and network with the honorees.

The 2024 Best Practices award recipients are:

  • Alice Kim – University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Optometry

  • Kendra Kim – State University of New York, College of Optometry

  • Meagan Seufert – Pacific University College of Optometry

Students were selected based on their academic standing at a U.S. optometry school, their demonstration of leadership and participation in school or community activities, academic honors, and additional optometry-related experience.

“The Best Practices community creates a unique network of both well-established practices and ‘rising stars’ who can all learn from one another,” said Dr. Andrews. “While the students look forward to hearing from some of the best of the best in the profession, they also bring their own refreshing perspective to the group that leaves everyone feeling inspired.”
