Advancing Optometry Worldwide, the World Council of Optometry’s next conference, is set to bring international speakers and delegates working to improve eye care around the world to Chicago.

Delegates will hear from speakers such as Professor Kovin Naidoo, African chair of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) and Global Programmes Director of the International Centre for Eyecare Education (ICEE); Pete Kehoe, O.D., past president of the AOA; Professor Thomas Freddo, University of Waterloo, Canada; and Clive Miller, chief executive officer of Optometry Giving Sight.

Advancing Optometry Worldwide is a fantastic chance to share experiences and learn from professionals from around the world, many of whom will be working in different environments with their own unique challenges, successes and opportunities.

The conference is taking place at Chicago’s Renaissance Blackstone Hotel from June 24-26.
